Review and Tasting


Sampled on 10/10/2016

Appearance:

Clear, mid to deep golden amber.

Aroma:

Intense and complex. Apple, baked peach, clove, wax jacket, candied fruit and faint candied ginger. Orange marmalade and ginger biscuit with water.

Taste:

Baked pear and intense spice. Overbaked apple turnover pastry, sweet clove and eccles cakes. A dash of water knocks back the baked biscuity fruit and amplifies the spice. Don’t be tempted to add more water as this kills the fruitiness.

Aftertaste:

Buttery apple, tarte tatin finish.

Overall:

Considering the price and the degree of pleasing flavours - bang per buck, this is my personal pick from Diageo’s 2016 Special Releases. Baked orchard fruit, mild clove spice, pastry and vanilla rich oak. Quaffable, pleasing and yet complex.
