Review and Tasting


Sampled on 29/10/2013

Appearance:

Clear, deep coppery amber.

Aroma:

Golden syrup, creamy barley and baked apple with toasty coconut macaroons, green grapes and honeydew melon. Water exposes freshly sawn oak.

Taste:

Big, dark and robust and yet slightly sweet. Hot spice balances honeyed sweetness with layers of complexity encompassing baked apple pie, sea salt, caramel, sweet liquorice and wisps of smoke.

Aftertaste:

Salty apple pie with a burnt crust and cinnamon spice.
