Review and Tasting


Sampled on 29/09/2012

Appearance:

Clear, pale golden.

Aroma:

Sweet barley malt, new leather, fudge and coconut with almond croissant, light lemon and orange citrus zest.

Taste:

Slightly sweet, vanillered palate with delicate pear and apple fruit, faint macadamia nut.

Aftertaste:

Vanilla, dried tropical fruit, fudge and toasted coconut. Wonderfully delicate, subtle and integrated.
