Suggestion on portions:
Enjoy neat or add a splash of water or ice to reveal rich notes of plum, orange zest and caramel.
Full-bodied, pleasant and smooth.
Rich, fruity Victoria plums, greengages, perhaps dried orange peel with a bit of caramel toffee or rum caramel and a wisp of smoke behind.
Sweet in front, then firmer, with a whiff of smoke. The overall effect is warming. The development is toward smoke, coal tar, and caramel.
Medium length and chili in the finish.
