Review and Tasting

Sampled on 26/09/2013

Appearance

Clear, coppery amber.

Aroma

Autumnal apple, fallen leaves and acorns with tropical dried fruit – mango, pineapple and guava. Toasted barley, new leather, light pot still spice and cacao.

Taste

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.

Aftertaste

Toasty oak, creamy barley, cigar box, vanilla fudge and lingering cinnamon spice.
