Coppery amber in the glass. Great aromatics of burnt orange peel, honey, and honeysuckle/floral notes. Citrus is repeated on the palate with mandarin oranges and fabulous length. Peppery elements on the nose along with orange marmalade. Vanilla and cinnamon. Baked apple, candied mango. Hints of smoke/burnt sugar. Touches of caramel. Day 2 -- 2/23 Excellent with Stilton. Orange marmalade and more vanilla. Honey and fig. Notes of aromatic iced tea, similar to Earl Gray.
