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.
