Review and Tasting

Sampled on 01/04/2011

Appearance

Clear, copper with russet tones.

Aroma

Pungent varnish, crystallised ginger and ginger cake nose with aromas of cassis, floral dandelion, lemon zest and flaked almond.

Taste

Hydrated to approx. 40% abv yields a huge palate with dry cedar wood, smoky oak and vegetal notes balanced by burst of sweet vanilla followed by gently warning spice comprising ginger, red pepper corns, and paprika.

Aftertaste

After the huge palate the finish is surprisingly restrained with lightly spiced lingering oak.
