Review and Tasting

Sampled on 18/07/2012

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

Fragrant oily hay and toasted nuts with faint freshly baked apple pie.

Taste

Mellow with oily brazil nuttiness and rich notes of meat stock, baked apples, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. The juniper flavour is somewhat masked by the other strong botanicals.

Aftertaste

Brasil nuts and lingering Christmas spice.
