Surprise find in Waitrose, and good value. Not the most complex VORS, but still pretty good – particularly for a sweetened style. Deep amber, with a broad caramel rim, showing just a hint of olive. Medium+ intensity, complex nose – sweet caramel, hazel- and walnut marzipan, vanilla, cinnamon, coffee cream touches and cooked citrus fruit. Some raisin hints and mocha. Intense, medium-sweet, but balanced by salinity. Low acidity and full-bodied. Woody edge to cooked orange, caramel and sweet spice, with some nuttiness. Long. Just needs more palate depth and complexity to be great.
