Review and Tasting


Sampled on 13/07/2012

Appearance:

Clear, coppery amber with polished bronze highlights.

Aroma:

Stewed and tropical dried fruit with cream soda/creamy custard vanilla, floral parma violet and delicate lightly gingery and cinnamon spice.

Taste:

(diluted to approx. 43%) Smooth and easy yet flavoursome. Yumm! Honeyed sherry sweetness balances dry lightly spiced oaky tannins.

Aftertaste:

Buttery vanilla and delicate spice. Harmonious but perhaps a tad too easy – David’s made a floozy.
