Review and Tasting


Sampled on 02/01/2014

Appearance:

(ref DV-L05, sample: 3758) Clear, pale golden.

Aroma:

Grilled almond, marzipan, crème anglaise and donuts frying with acacia honey, cinnamon and delicate cedarwood. With water buttery leather and dried pear emerge.

Taste:

Tightly integrated and unyielding at full-strength with honeyed old leather struggling to counter spirity spice. With water, initial sweet dried fruit, butter and vanilla is quickly followed by an explosion of cinnamon and nutmeg spice with drying oak.

Aftertaste:

Buttery vanilla and dominating hot spice.
