Review and Tasting

Sampled on 29/09/2012


Clear, pale golden.


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


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


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