Review and Tasting
Sampled on 14/09/2013
Light to mid golden with heavy beading.
Earthy, zesty orange marmalade with light smokiness, leather and faint coal tar.
Wonderfully sweet with rich fruity spice, peppery prickle and faint smoke. Chewy mouthfeel.
Long, lingering leather, marmalade, gentle salt and pepper spice. Faint peaty creosote.
