Review and Tasting

Sampled on 08/08/2011


Clear, light golden yellow.


A fruit, wood shavings, oily nose with orange zest, dried peaches and white pepper spice.


Sweet, yet very cracked black pepper spicy attacking palate with generous rye, lemon zest, minty flavours.


A touch of aniseed emerges in the oily, black pepper spicy finish.
