The nose was complex with sweet aromas of toffee, honey and sticky pastries mixing with tropical fruits and roasted nuts dusted with Moroccan spices. The fruits expanded on the palate into mango, melon, banana and papaya with peppermint sherbet and dried herbs mingling with nutmeg and allspice. Adding a little water brought out fennel seeds, cumin seeds and kaffir lime leaves before deeper notes of dates, raisons and dark chocolate covered nuts emerged. Tropical fruits remained but now alongside oak and cask char. Complex leafy and herbal flavours evolved into green olives, capes and strong black tea with hints of smoke.
