Review and Tasting

Sampled on 27/06/2015


Clear, golden amber.


Pungent. Vanilla custard, cinnamon, orange zest, dried apricot and overripe banana with dark chocolate, coffee and nougat. Coal dust emerges with water.


Full-bodied. Dried fruit, vanilla, dry spicy cinnamon oak, light tar and bonfire smoke. The wonderful balance and body falls apart somewhat water – best enjoyed neat.


Tar, slightly smoky, hot pepper spice, caramel and black pepper spice.


Pungent, full-bodied and characterful. Tar, light bonfire smoke and dry spicy cinnamon oak is mellowed by vanilla custard, floral notes and dark chocolate.
