Review and Tasting


Sampled on 25/11/2016

Appearance:

Clear, mid-deep golden amber with burnished gold highlights.

Aroma:

Lime blossom, lime zest, leather and heather honey with faint wisps of smoke. Quince and pear emerge with water.

Taste:

Rich and full-flavoured while also dry and elegant, with a combination of leather, creamy caramel and butterscotch, lightly honeyed apple or pear, garnished with a tiny hint of smoke and cloves. Tart apple and light peaty smoke with water.

Aftertaste:

Another flourish of flavours with a hint of iodine and peat with lingering gentle smoke.
