Review and Tasting

Sampled on 26/11/2011

Appearance

Clear golden amber.

Aroma

Attractive leather rubbed with linseed oil and fruity aromas akin to Angel Delight desert, delicate apricot and stewed apple.

Taste

Rich, easy yet complex, fruity (stewed apple and pears with ripe banana) palate with pronounced vanilla, roasted almonds, majestic oak, gentle cinnamon and pepper spice.

Aftertaste

Long barley finish with oak tannins turning dry as it fades with lingering vanilla and faint burnt plastic-like flavours.
