Review and Tasting

Sampled on 25/07/2014


Clear, golden amber.


Pungent, creamy vanilla/toffee and dried apricot with aggressive black pepper, faint peppermint and citrus.


Dry palate with flavours of black pepper, caramel and butterscotch predominating over citrus zest, cooked fruit, vanilla, ginger and spearmint.


Bitter toffee and citrus linger on the dry finish with faint smokiness.
