Very sweet on the tongue initially followed by wonderful blend of sweet and bitter complexity. The taste delivers what the aroma promises which is classic Demerera brown sugar and molasses with a cornucopia of dried mixed fruits such as sultanas, prunes, and dried tropical fruits. Island spices coat everything in a subtle way. The finish is warm, and firm with gentle oak, caramel, and English toffee. Hints of sherry, leather, and tea add to the magic of this blend.
