Review and Tasting


Sampled on 10/10/2016

Appearance:

Clear, pale golden amber.

Aroma:

Quite closed with cut grass, pencil shavings, cinnamon and light clove. However, a dash of water reveals pungent pear drops, pear skin and faint almond oil. Very faint smokiness.

Taste:

Barley water, pencil shavings, cinnamon and white pepper spice mask underlying pear fruitiness. Water make flavours harmonious with more fruit, faint aniseed and orange emerging.

Aftertaste:

Liquorice emerges in the long finish with subtle aniseed and clove spice.

Overall:

Light-bodied yet with a woody chewiness. A dash of water is essential to reveal this malt’s pleasing pear fruitiness, otherwise overshadowed by oak and mild spice.
