Review and Tasting


Sampled on 01/06/2011

Appearance:

(Bottled 2004, batch L001) Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Strangely attractive whiff of farmyard/dung to the smoky nose with a slight breeze from the apple orchards beyond.

Taste:

Superbly balanced and incredibly soft with ripe fruit, hickory smoke and black tea flavours all vying for attention.

Aftertaste:

Medium length finish delicately fades as an even mellower version of the palate.
