Review and Tasting


Sampled on 21/11/2016

Appearance:

(batch No. WT-03RB) Clear (with very slight sediment), coppery bronze.

Aroma:

Roasted nuts, rolling tobacco, black pepper, burnt sugar and pastry with chocolate, vanilla custard and overripe banana. With water more caramel fudge and mint emerges.

Taste:

Roasted brazil nut, walnut and dry peppery spiced oak with distinctive salty caramel. Notes of tobacco with faint mint. More buttery with water.

Aftertaste:

Roast nuts, dried fruit and fudge with white pepper and lingering nutty crème caramel.

Overall:

Dry, nutty and spicy with a distinctive saltiness. A Rare Breed indeed.
