Review and Tasting

Sampled on 24/09/2012

Appearance

Clear, light coppery amber.

Aroma

Dried apricot fruit, Christmas cake and Christmas spice with clove infused linseed oil and faint toffee/fudge.

Taste

Rich, fruity and spicy with just enough dry sandlewood, bitter almond and tea-like tannins to add balance and depth.

Aftertaste

Long, rich, spiced finish. Overall just a tad too spicy but a most pleasing dram all the same.
