|G&M: Hints of fruitcake, dark chocolate, candied peel, and light, subtle oak characteristics.|
|G&M: ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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.|
