Review and Tasting


Sampled on 08/11/2010

Appearance:

Clear, dark amber.

Aroma:

Sweet cinnamon spice, hint of nutmeg, toffee apple, slightly treacled – almost Christmassy.

Taste:

Rich, full-bodied with honeyed fruit cake, vanilla, toffee, creamy caramel, butterscotch, fudge and an orange marmalade.

Aftertaste:

Ginger and nutmeg contribute to the spicy notes, which are the enduring flavours in the long caramel, vanilla finish.
