Clear, golden amber.
Honeyed dried fruit, green apple, leather and light cinnamon spice. Water amplifies fragrant apple and pear fruit with aromas reminiscent of an old-fashioned fruit and veg shop with whiffs of allspice.
At full-strength, honey and fruity sweetness is slightly masked by spirity spice. Water opens to properly reveal the fine balance between sweet dried orchard fruit and elegantly spiced oak.
Spiced pear and elegant oak.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
