Review and Tasting

Sampled on 23/08/2014

Appearance

Clear, golden amber with coppery tones.

Aroma

Waxy red apple skin, leather, dried fruit and elegant spice. Subtle linseed oil, ripe strawberry, soot and nuts with nutmeg and cinnamon spice. Water reveals red apple skin, dried coconut and vanilla.

Taste

Well-balanced and elegant with plum fruit, dark chocolate, prunes, raisins, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and tosty oak. With water, chewy fruit, grilled nuts and delicate spice. Metallic but in a good way.

Aftertaste

Toasty and lightly cinnamon spiced with pleasing baked apple.
