Review and Tasting


Sampled on 10/10/2016

Appearance:

Clear, golden amber with shades of rose gold.

Aroma:

Acorns, orchard fruit, honeysuckle and spice. Water amplifies orchard fruitiness revealing waxiness.

Taste:

Peppery spice and pear fruit with waxiness, ginger and clove. A dash of water brings this malts elements into kilter, revealing black tea, blackcurrant and menthol cough sweets.

Aftertaste:

Waxy, leathery, soft malty finish with orchard fruit and mild spice.

Overall:

Waxy leather, orchard fruit and mild spice, this malt is incredibly quaffable – the sample provided was all too small. Incredibly fruity and sprightly for a 37 year old.
