Review and Tasting


Sampled on 29/10/2013

Appearance:

Clear, deep amber.

Aroma:

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

Taste:

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.

Aftertaste:

Burnt pastry and sweet smoke.
