Review and Tasting
Sampled on 11/09/2014
Clear, golden amber.
Waxy, fudge, ripe peach and creamy biscuit. More fruity (ripe apple, pear and pineapple), biscuity and nutty with water. Faint notes of rosewater.
Vanilla, toffee, butterscotch, cigar leaf, ripe pineapple, orange and pencil shavings. Waxiness is more apparent with water, as is fruit.
Toasty malty finish with elegant spice and cedar wood. Easy, complex and rewarding.
