Tasting Notes

Nose
G&M:  Hints of fruitcake, dark chocolate, candied peel, and light, subtle oak characteristics.
Taste
G&M:  There’s a ripe, rich fruity character of an older orange that has matured from its zesty vitality, together with rum and raisin chocolate.  With water - Chocolate orange soothes the palate, eclipsing the fruitier notes at cask strength.
