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.
