Review and Tasting


Sampled on 30/11/2013

Appearance:

Clear, mid-golden amber.

Aroma:

Wonderfully aromatic with almond croissant, almond butter, crème anglaise, pear drops, pear skin, fruit cake, tarte tatin and zesty orange marmalade.

Taste:

Incredible bursts of tropical fruit yet delicate and elegantly restrained. Mango, passion fruit and tinned peaches with underlying gently smoked spicy oak.

Aftertaste:

Dried tropical lingers with grilled almond and very delicate smoke.
