Review and Tasting

Sampled on 21/09/2013


(2012 release) Clear, mid golden. Very oily.


Zesty orange marmalade with earthy smoke and floral shrubbery.


Oily marmalade with faint wisp of smoke and slight muscatel sweetness lightening and extending the palate.


Short to medium finish with gentle salty spice and faint smoke.
