Review and Tasting


Sampled on 16/03/2020

Appearance:

Clear, mid-deep golden amber.

Aroma:

Monkey nuts, peanut, cinnamon, creamy cereal, rosemary and vanilla.

Taste:

Cinnamon and white pepper spice, creamy barley, mashed overripe banana and (as the brand's own notes say) "ice-cream cone wafer".

Aftertaste:

Cinnamon spiced toasted barley and bitter green tea with faint candied lemon. Subtle floral notes emerge and linger.

Overall:

Rich creamy cereal, monkey nuts, peanuts and overripe banana is toned by bitter green tea and enlivened with cinnamon spice.
