Review and Tasting

Sampled on 16/11/2015


(sample bottle batch 2, No. 76 of 600) Clear but not bright, light rose-golden amber.


Piney juniper with nutty woodiness.


Dry and spicy. Strong juniper and newly sawn pine tannins with black tea, cracked black pepper spice and calamine floral notes.


Dry, black pepper spiced piney juniper.


Dry wood tannins from cask aging dominate this spicy old tom, masking subtle notes from botanicals such as rose. Perhaps too long in cask.
