Review and Tasting


Sampled on 06/07/2011

Appearance:

Clear, dark golden amber with copper highlights.

Aroma:

Christmas cake, candied dried fruit nose with prune, walnut, marzipan, cedar wood, orange zest, anise and nutmeg spice aromas.

Taste:

Rich, luxurious, candied fruit, buttterscotch palate with freshly zested orange oils, almond, dried apricot, aniseed and delicately spicy oak (cinnamon and nutmeg) adding backbone.

Aftertaste:

Layers of fruit and floral flavours emerge in the still orangey zest finish.
