75 cl bottle poured into a tasting glass

Dark raisiny cloudy amber in color, very small white head, little lacing.  
Strong congnac nose, aged dark pitted fruit, caramel/toffee,
Taste follows the nose with plenty of big sweet malty goodness.   Lots of raisin, fig, cognac , dates , vanila ... and brown sugar,  
While not overly alcoholic, its very warming, very chewy/malty.   This is great !
Body and mouthfeel are fairly full.  
Great stuff, not too hot, but certainly one to sip slowly.
