Review and Tasting

Sampled before 1st May 2011

Appearance

Clear, deep burnished copper amber with gold flecks.

Aroma

Nutmeg and cinnamon spice with linseed oil, brazil nut, dark chocolate and bramley apple pie. Faint smokiness.

Taste

Spicy, lightly smoky earthy peat, dark chocolate, black cherries, toffee, bitter orange zest and black olive notes. Drink water between sips rather than adding water which seems to magnify the smoke and drown subtle honey notes.

Aftertaste

Flavours on the long finish swing from sweet to dry and back to sweet as honey flips to smoke and back.
