    Review and Tasting

    Sampled on 09/12/2013

    Appearance

    Clear, golden amber.

    Aroma

    Honey, cedarwood, chocolate éclair and mild cinnamon. A splash of water reveals butterscotch, vanilla, dried fruit and linseed oil.

    Taste

    Even at full strength this honeyed malt is meek and mild with butterscotch, pastry, fudge and white pepper. A splash of water amplifies the white pepper to the detriment of the butterscotch, but the pepper sits brilliantly with vanilla fudge, dried fruit and maple syrup.

    Aftertaste

    Long spiced vanilla fudge with faint eucalyptus freshness.
