Review and Tasting
Sampled on 12/11/2012
Clear, mid golden amber.
Old apple boxes and leathery vanilla with pear skin and cider with rubbed mint leaves, subtle cinnamon and nutmeg spice.
Pleasing sherry notes meat American toasted coconut with a flavour explosion of apple and stewed pear, roasted nuts with root ginger and red peppercorn spice.
Barley and burnt sultana sherry notes vie for attention in the apple and leather finish with chocolate, coffee and lingering minty freshness.
