Review and Tasting

Sampled on 13/07/2011


Clear, Indian gold yellow with range highlights.


Bitter apricot and orange marmalade nose with aromas of cherryade, chilli heat, buttery oak and a touch of old-fashioned oil paint.


Diluted to approx. 40% abv yields a huge palate with chewy bitter oak, overripe banana, toffee, sweet cherry, well-charred wholemeal toast and vanilla.


Burnt toast, bitter toffee, sweet caramel finish.
