Nose: brighter, slightly more floral and juicy. Stewed apples oranges and nectarines, joined by acacia honey, light vanilla and a hint of jasmine. Seems older than it is, really refined and incredibly fresh.
Mouth: a surprising sweetness, showing lots of mirabelles, oranges and quince jam, hints of melon with a good dollop of honey. Picks up light herbal notes and hints of chocolate and toffee towards the end. Still some vanilla. Good strength really.
Finish: medium length, with hints of nutmeg and cinnamon, as well as red fruits and woody notes.
Quite rounded and fruity. Maybe a tad too sweet for my own taste, but those with a sweet tooth will love it. This would be perfect to impress your family after a Christmas dinner.
