Review and Tasting
Sampled on 21/11/2016
(batch No. WT-03RB) Clear (with very slight sediment), coppery bronze.
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.
Roasted brazil nut, walnut and dry peppery spiced oak with distinctive salty caramel. Notes of tobacco with faint mint. More buttery with water.
Roast nuts, dried fruit and fudge with white pepper and lingering nutty crème caramel.
Dry, nutty and spicy with a distinctive saltiness. A Rare Breed indeed.
