Review and Tasting

Sampled on 01/12/2012


Clear, golden amber.


Fragrant and ripe freshly picked red apples, barley water, crème brûlée, blackened fruit cake, overripe pineapple and honeydew melon with delicate oak, cinnamon spice.


Dry lightly smoky peat balances sweet honeycomb and vanilla with red apples, liquorice and burnt fruitcake.


Apples, nuts and tropical fruit with subtle lingering, slightly salty peat smoke.
