Review and Tasting
Sampled on 04/04/2011
Clear, golden amber.
New leather, coal tar and linseed oil quickly changes to buttery pastry with notes reminiscent of a corn based whiskey.
Mellow rounded and tightly integrated palate is more malty and smoky than the nose suggests. Pastry, baked apple with cinnamon spice, salt and hints of ginger heat.
Dry smoky, lightly spiced finish sees those tar notes return.
