Review and Tasting

Sampled on 03/01/2013

Appearance

Clear, mid golden amber.

Aroma

Pungent candied fruit, pear drops and stewed apples with vanilla oak.

Taste

While honeyed, this not the fruit-laden sweetie the nose might suggest. Green apple, pear and vanilla are and balanced by light smoky peat, citrus and dry nutty oak.

Aftertaste

Pleasingly smoky finish with chargrilled pear and vanilla.
