Review and Tasting

Sampled on 11/01/2014

Appearance

Clear, golden amber with faint green tinge.

Aroma

Dried fruit, sherry, old oak wardrobe and leather with nutmeg and cinnamon. Water amplifies oak, sherry and raisony fruit.

Taste

Dry and oaky with pencil shavings, cigar box, coal tar, burnt raisony fruit cake and nutmeg. Perfectly enjoyable at full-strength but water opens with fruit, oak and spice sitting in perfect kilter.

Aftertaste

Oaky, charcoal and mild nutmeg spice. Delicious.
