    Review and Tasting

    Sampled on 17/11/2009

    Appearance

    Clear, pale gold.

    Aroma

    Maple syrup/vanilla with aromas of gala melon skin, lime zest, sage and bitter marmalade.

    Taste

    Starts sweet and remains firey with powerful pepper notes, sharp bitter orange and caramelised marmalade.

    Aftertaste

    Oily, slightly green. Still stokes that warming fire emitting whisps of smoke.
