Review and Tasting

Sampled on 17/02/2015

Appearance

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma

Raisins, sultanas and prunes with earthy pine needle, linseed oil putty, unsalted butter and vanilla with faint mocha coffee and lavender blossom. Water releases dill and lavender.

Taste

Dried fruit sweetness (plump raisin, sultana and prune) balances oak tannins, cinnamon, nutmeg and black pepper spice. Water opens but knocks back dried fruit sweetness.

Aftertaste

Rich fruity finish with lingering spiced oak. Overall: Rich fruit mellows Spanish oak tannins and pot still spice.
