My tasting notes
Nose: Caramel, fudge, vanilla and a hint of funk. Ripe, tropical fruits. Deeply sweet, but in a tempered way.
Taste: Medium body. Rather dry. White pepper, bitter-ish notes of nuts and oak. Ginger, and a smidge aniseed.
Finish: Medium long finish. Vanilla. Towards the end a very earthy and vegetal note, like root vegetables straight out of the dirt.
Comment: Farmer’s delight.
