Review and Tasting

Sampled on 27/03/2017

Appearance

Clear and bright, mid-golden amber.

Aroma

Chocolate sponge cake, zesty lemon, vanilla, nutmeg and chocolate fudge with fragrant floral aromas. Water releases nutty banoffee pie which turns to zesty lemon aromas. Faint Swan Vesta matchbox lighting strip.

Taste

Dry spicy oak, vanilla and new leather with lemon zest and faint sulphur. Water amplifies oaky spice and releases bread pudding flavours.

Aftertaste

Nutmeg spice, banana toffee, dry oak and faint sulphur.

Overall

Dry and spice with notes that start as chocolate sponge cake on the nose and become bread pudding on the palate. Vanilla and zesty lemon as present through as are faint sulphur notes.
