Review and Tasting
Sampled on 05/09/2011
Clear, dark golden amber.
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.
Hydrated to approx. 40% yields a sweet, toffee apple with rich vanilla and caramel balanced by dry, bitter woody tannins.
Wafts of smoke and spice emerge in the still toffee influenced mocha coffee, woody finish.
