Deep mahogany color with discreet olive highlights on the rim. Very fine, elegant nose, with an opulent core of wild honey, molasses and butterscotch infused with a spicy redolence of black pepper and cinnamon. Cedary cigar box aromas, savory scents of wild herbs and a discreet aura of fresh mint add a further layer of complexity. The perfectly calibrated palate is lifted by a fresh acidity and delivers a wealth of rich mellow flavor with notes of molasses, dried figs, sultanas and apricot confit. The finish is clean and bright, with ripe pear and mint and very discreet zesty citrus notes. Port House Notes
