Panel's tasting note: "The initial nose has subtle fruits and flowers – patience coaxes out soft toffee, chocolate-coated bananas and mandarins in syrup; all on clean new oak. The palate has an attractive delicacy – caramel wafers, ice-cream, honey and cherry chocolates, balanced by spiced bourbon, nuttiness and hints of grapefruit. On the reduced nose, sweet treats of orange and lemon candied slices, candy corn, and shaved coconut on chocolate custard are laid out on a table somewhere between the botanic gardens and a sawmill. The reduced palate has vanilla, custard creams, chocolate limes and marrons glacés, with some bourbon-like char and spice in the finish."
