Flavour Profile: Nose
It is a gentle unveiling of aromas. Fresh fruit & a handful of malted barley begins, before the entrance of soft vanilla & white rose.
Flavour Profile: Palate
Deliciously sweet & enticing like warm cinnamon doughnuts, developing into rich berry & an appetising dryness of black tea, ginger & clove.
Flavour Profile: Finish
Comforting, long & warming, flavours of spiced chai emerge leaving the palate with an outro of late tannins.
