Review and Tasting

Sampled on 13/09/2012

Appearance

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma

Honey rubbed old leather with delicate floral and citrus notes.

Taste

Remarkably fruity and honeyed for its advanced years with delicately cinnamon and nutmeg spiced oak providing back bone rather than dominating.

Aftertaste

Long, satisfying velvety finish extends the complex and balanced palate. A super premium collectable with a flavour to match its price point - it tastes like a million dollars.

Closure: Natural cork stopper
