Review and Tasting
Sampled on 26/09/2013
Clear, coppery amber.
Autumnal apple, fallen leaves and acorns with tropical dried fruit – mango, pineapple and guava. Toasted barley, new leather, light pot still spice and cacao.
Delicious sweet sherry, sweet ripe red apple, leather, currants and sultans all held in check by spirity black pepper notes from the generous bottling strength and dry spicy oak, nutmeg and cinnamon spice. Water upsets the balance – best enjoyed neat.
Toasty oak, creamy barley, cigar box, vanilla fudge and lingering cinnamon spice.
