Review and Tasting
Sampled on 14/04/2014
Clear, vibrant golden orange-yellow.
Intense mandarin peel with green piney notes, vanilla, cognac and a hint of clove, cinnamon and nutmeg spice.
Rich and slightly sweet with syrupy mouthfeel. Strong orange flavours are amplified by the sugar with a hint of refreshing bitter orange and zesty mandarin bite.
Strong mandarin freshness and with zesty bite lasts throughout the long finish.
