Review and Tasting

Sampled on 03/01/2011

Appearance

Clear, golden-bronze.

Aroma

Cooking apples in a wooden crate with hints of toffee and ripe banana.

Taste

Something of a surprise after the nose with a good blast of tar malt, salt and flint.

Aftertaste

Long finish grips with malty warmth. From a distance the black-sprayed bottle with metallic gold detailing looks great, but sadly it does not stand up to closer scrutiny, particularly the poorly fixed golden lions label. Considering its positioning as a super premium blend has been reflected in our rating.
