Review and Tasting
Sampled on 03/09/2020
Clear, golden amber.
Heather honey and pear dusted with cinnamon.
Honey, rich pear, vanilla and caramel are balanced by faintly smoked malt, cinnamon, dry oak tannins and roasted nuts.
Toasty oak, pear and honey.
Rich pear fruitiness and honey perfectly offset dry oak tannins and cinnamon spice in this very quaffable dram.
