Review and Tasting

Sampled on 24/11/2023


Deep golden amber. (Natural colour - no caramel added.)


Vibrant and generous. Honey, vanilla fudge, leather, tobacco and cherry with cinnamon, clove and nutmeg spiced oak and sandalwood. Faint balsamic.


Chewy oak and assertive cinnamon, clove and nutmeg spice are mellowed by an oily mouthfeel and fruity sweetness with caramelised apple, figs, sultanas and prunes. Subtle dark chocolate.


Dry, spicy oak with vanilla fudge, lingering oak resins and dark chocolate (chocolate particularly noticeable with water).


Full-bodied, robust and fruity. Youthful but with a monster personality. One to enjoy by the fireside. Takes a splash of water well with vanilla fudge and dark chocolate notes amplified.
