Review and Tasting

Sampled on 15/08/2011

Appearance

Clear, dark amber/burnished copped with golden highlights.

Aroma

Hydrated to 43 per cent yields vivacious butterscotch and toffee, spicy with burst of vanilla, nutmeg, clove, ginger and carbolic soap-like aromas.

Taste

Generously palate bursts with barbeque charcoal, cacao, spicy rye, toffee, vanilla and maple syrup.

Aftertaste

Faint anise and eucalyptus flavours are more obvious in the long spicy, butterscotch and nutty toffee finish.
