Review and Tasting


Sampled on 21/03/2022

Appearance:

Clear, deep coppery amber.

Aroma:

Blackened fruit cake and golden syrup with sawn oak, honey-drizzled dates and figs.

Taste:

Rich vinous dried fruit counters assertive alcohol strength and oak tannins to make very approachable and even quaffable. Toasted pumpernickel bread, dried figs, vanilla and baking spices.

Aftertaste:

Toasty oak, pumpernickel and baking spices.

Overall:

A splash of water amplifies vanilla and barley water notes but this malt is at its best undiluted at bottling strength. A tad exuberant and in your face but all the more quaffable for it.
