Review and Tasting

Sampled on 15/08/2011

Appearance

Clear, pale golden yellow.

Aroma

Grainy nose with spicy woody aromas somewhat reminiscent of cigarette ashtray (in a good way). Rum-like fruitiness with overripe pineapple and banana aromas.

Taste

Dry oak influenced spicy palate which starts sweet but turns bitter with a wet wood smoke flavour.

Aftertaste

Lingering spicy finish with ginger cake and lasting cedar woody bitterness which is strangely appealing.
