Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Surface aromas of almond biscotti, baked apricot, cinnamon and vanilla take hold before diving deep into hints of pipe tobacco and worn leather. Absolutely impeccable mouth-feel, rich and layered with brown sugar, orange marmalade and shaved nutmeg. Opulent and sweet on the finish. (Apr 2014)

A complex blend of Copper pot still rums aged for 12 long years, has a characterful nose, showing fruit cake, rum'n'raisin ice cream, cocoa, dried ginger, cinnamon and clove. Develops baked bananas with fudge sauce and chewy toffee notes alongside vanilla oak and a deeper note of syrupy gingerbread, with hints of orange zest. The palate evokes chocolate sauce and the sweet toffee, fudge and tropical fruit flavours from the nose. Flakes of Terry's Dark Chocolate Orange sprinkled over melted vanilla ice cream. Deep, vivid and extremely seductive flavours.
