Review and Tasting

Sampled on 16/04/2015

Appearance

Clear, pale golden.

Aroma

Peaty, oily white bread crust with medicinal phenols, faint pear and apple fruit. Water reveals vanilla fudge.

Chewy smoky peat with cigarette ash, green apple fruit and sweet vanilla. Water brings out fabulous orchard fruitiness and zesty orange.

Long. Lightly oily, elegantly spicy and peaty.

Overall

Sump oil covered crusty banquette filled with pear and apple with an orange zest twist.
