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.
