Review and Tasting

Sampled on 07/05/2012


Clear, mid golden amber with bright golden highlights.


Biscuity vanilla with sherry, overripe fudgy banana and furniture polish.


Lovely nuttiness emerges (brazil nut, almond) over a fruity (green apple), vanilla cereal grain base. Faint peatyness.


Nuttiness lasts through the long lightly smoked finish.
