A luxurious nose kicks off with golden syrup, white grapes and cooking apples before malt and marzipan reveal along with sweet cereals. Stewed pear and a hint of brown sugar arrive after some time. The palate has flavors of caramel, white chocolate and vanilla emerge through fizzing ginger and white pepper. Mandarin, lychee and deep dark fruits develop to form an impressively fruity backdrop.
