Review and Tasting

Sampled on 18/07/2011

Appearance

Clear, copper amber with bright golden highlights.

Aroma

Complex, flamed orange zest, floral nose with almond, vanilla, Indian spice and sandalwood aromas.

Taste

Complex and harmonious. Citrus flavours vye between kumquat, orange crème brûlée and bitter orange zest while balanced sweetness comes in the form of caramel, honey, marzipan, vanilla and white chocolate. Fortifying spirity cognac notes form the third tightly integrated element with black pepper, almond, prunes and dry spicy oak.

Aftertaste

The lingering finish is a continuation of the palate but with more marzipan and tropical fruit emerging.
