Review and Tasting

Sampled on 29/10/2013

Appearance

Clear, mid golden amber.

Aroma

Boiled sweets, vanilla, sandalwood and bubble-gum with waxy red apple skin and biscuity malt. Water amplifies sweet orchard fruit.

Taste

Sweet with balancing acidity – pear drops, nuts, cacao and orchard fruit. Water amplifies fruitiness and sweet notes – perhaps too much.

Aftertaste

Black cherry, orange zest oils and lingering dry cedarwood.
