Review and Tasting

Sampled on 15/02/2016

Appearance

(sample DL REF 11009) Clear, deep coppery amber.

Aroma

Muscovado sugar, molasses, green apple and fresh apricot with lemon citrus zest and white pepper spice. More Muscovado sugar and vanilla with water.

Taste

Apple cider, backed apple, cinnamon, pencil shaving oak, liquorice and barley water. Overly dry and oaky with water.

Aftertaste

Fades with dry pencil shaving oak and crushed mint leaves.

Overall

Perhaps a tad over matured with notes of apple and barley sugar dominated by pencil shaving-like dry oak and lightly bitter crushed mint leaves.
