Review and Tasting

Sampled on 23/03/2013


Clear, golden amber.


Soft leather, marmalade boiling in the saucepan and light clove with acacia honey, rolling tobacco and delicate orange blossom.


Crème brûlée, leathery earthy tobacco, dates, fudge and orange. Wonderfully complex.


Fudge notes linger with orange zest, mandarin fruit and figgy Christmas pudding fruit.
