Review and Tasting

Sampled on 11/09/2014

Appearance

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma

Not quite ripe pineapple, melon, daffodil, clementine and green apple skin with vanilla and delicate toasty oak. Spicier and oakier (toasty) with vanilla when water is added.

Taste

More unripe pineapple, green apple skin and gooseberries. Almost creamy, verging on buttery vanilla fudge with water.

Aftertaste

Pineapple again with candlewax, sandalwood and resinous pine.
