Review and Tasting
Sampled on 17/02/2018
Clear, bright golden amber.
Buttery biscuit, sawdust, pastry and hay with delicate clove spice. Pastry and clove notes are amplified a splash of water.
Sweet pastry and cake are quickly dried by clove and Christmas spice. With further sips the spice turns sweeter with herbal notes more obvious. Drier with water with more pronounced clove spice and rye bread notes emerging.
Lightly spicy and malty with faint minty toffee.
This is a malt to savour at Christmas time - to sip with mince pies in front of the fire while contemplating the past year. Sweet spice, pasty, herbal and subtle rye bread are finished with the merest hint of minty toffee.
