Review and Tasting
Sampled on 06/05/2013
Clear, pale golden.
Dried and candied fruit with subtle toasted coconut and floral honeysuckle.
Even at full strength this is a wonderfull light and fruity (apple and pear) malt but add a splash of water and wonderfully nutty, toasted coconut notes emerge.
Dry, lightly spiced cedar wood notes emerge in the delicate fruity finish.
