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.
