Review and Tasting
Sampled on 02/10/2012
Clear, pale golden.
Overripe banana and green apple with apricot jam, zesty orange, acacia honey, vanilla and butterscotch.
Slightly sweet with green apple skin, peach juice and biscuit. Subtle clove and white pepper spice adds depth and interest.
Fruity and long with lingering black pepper spice.
