Review and Tasting

Sampled on 24/03/2012

Appearance

Clear, pale golden with rose gold highlights.

Aroma

Wonderfully aromatic and fruity with toasted malty green apple skin, baked pear and overripe banana with lemony citrus.

Taste

Full-bodied and expressive with fruity vanilla tempered by graceful grassy peatyness, charcoal and faint black olives. Garnished with black pepper corns, garam marsala and cinnamon spice.

Aftertaste

Malty finish with lingering peatyness and lightly spiced toffee apple.
