Review and Tasting

Sampled on 29/10/2013


Clear, deep amber.


Tree bark, leather, pear fruit and restrained cigar box. Water reveals honeyed notes.


Chewy and slightly sweet with roast chestnuts, very gentle spice, charcoal and tropical fruit. A splash of water opens to amplify orchard fruit and more honey.


Burnt pastry and sweet smoke.
