Review and Tasting


Sampled on 30/08/2011

Appearance:

Clear, Golden with burnished copper highlights.

Aroma:

Elegant spicy delicately oaked with cinnamon, green tea, chocolate, old leather, rolling tobacco and generous vanilla.

Taste:

Wonderfully harmonious palate explodes releasing vanilla-caramel, spicy, nutty, grainy, oaky, floral and fruity flavours out of an old leather bag packed with dry oaky flavour sticks.

Aftertaste:

Very long spicy, vanilla oaky finish.
