Colour: Dark Amber Aroma: Beautiful aromas of fresh orange groves transform into velvety chocolate truffles filled with sherry. Fresh, sweet honeysuckle tones add depth to chocolate orange. Taste: Dark chocolate with vibrant bursts of orange oil. Candied fruit with gentle oak notes lead to subtle humidor nuances. Finish: Long and smooth; dark chocolate with orange and dried fruit. Hints of charred oak complement the slight meatiness of the dram, leading into lingering warm roasted chestnuts.
