Review and Tasting


Sampled on 13/02/2014

Appearance:

Clear, deep coppery amber.

Aroma:

Toasty/smoldering oak wood, red wine tannins, Eccles cake, milk chocolate biscuits, raspberry and cherry with toasted almond and espresso. Water amplifies oak, dark chocolate, espresso and raspberry jam.

Taste:

Spicy and fruity with aggressive dry wood tannins and cinnamon and nutmeg spice slightly tamed by caramelised brown sugar and raspberry jam sweetness. Water exposes match box striking pad sulphur notes but also makes more elegant and balanced.

Aftertaste:

Lingering vinous tannins with clove and black pepper spice. A dry spicy malt which won’t appeal to all.
