Review and Tasting
Sampled on 18/04/2016
Clear, deep amber.
Honeyed vinous notes, old oak wardrobe, roasted agave and passion fruit.
Rich raisiny fruit set against dry spicy oak with light agave, vanilla and black pepper spice.
More rich raisin fruit, sweet vanilla, dry oak and lingering black pepper.
Flavours and character reminiscent of an XO cognac presented in a fruity tequila.
