Review and Tasting

Sampled on 05/09/2011

Appearance

Clear, dark golden amber.

Aroma

Rolling tobacco, plastic box, old varnish with aromatic cinnamon dusted dried fruit and candied lemon peel. A whiff of eucalyptus - somewhat reminiscent of a dry madeira.

Taste

Hydrated to approx. 40% yields a sweet, toffee apple with rich vanilla and caramel balanced by dry, bitter woody tannins.

Aftertaste

Wafts of smoke and spice emerge in the still toffee influenced mocha coffee, woody finish.
