The nose is sweet and quite light, taking a while to open - peanut oil, vanilla ice-cream with caramel swirls and a hint of cinnamon. The body is toffee at first, then opens up to deliver cinnamon, vanilla and tea. It then brings dried fruits - raisins and sultanas - and moves towards oranges, lemons, limes, and peaches at the back of the body. It’s a fruit explosion! The mouthfeel is decent. The fruit explosion continues into the finish, which is a party of fruit and cinnamon.
