Review and Tasting


Sampled on 19/11/2011

Appearance:

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma:

Unctuous moist fruit cake nose with plum dried fruit, almond, splash of rich sherry and marzipan. Faint but alluring floral aroma.

Taste:

Rich, fruity palate with gentle clove spice, buttery oak, apple juice reduction and toasted almonds and linseed oil impregnated leather.

Aftertaste:

Long, gently spiced complex finish with lingering oaky vanillins and a gentle wisp of smoke.
