Review and Tasting

Sampled on 11/09/2014

Appearance

Clear, pale golden amber.

Aroma

Burnt toast, grainy cereal and hazelnut with faint smokiness, vanilla, citrus zest and coconut. Water amplifies vanilla with faint berry notes.

Taste

Toasted coconut, peppery at first with white chocolate, rum & raisin ice-cream and faint smokiness. Faint barley-sugar sweetness helps mask high strength. Water (go easy with amount added) releases ginger spice and faint saltiness.

Aftertaste

Fruit cake, toasty nuts and smoke with faint eucalyptus.
