Review and Tasting


Sampled on 17/09/2011

Appearance:

Clear, bright golden amber with lighter golden highlights.

Aroma:

Lavender and ginger are most evident on a rich nose with delicate stewed fruit, balsawood, nubuck leather, old boat varnish and Sechuan pepper aromas.

Taste:

Huge palate explodes with flavour and a smoothness which belies the high strength. With the addition of water (hydrated to appox. 40% abv) it becomes incredibly sophisticated and delicate with coffee and chocolate emerging. Creamy vanilla and sweet nubuck leather balanced by ginger, Sechuan pepper dry oak and stewed breakfast tea tannins.

Aftertaste:

Long, satisfying violet and vanilla spiced tea, leathery finish.
