Review and Tasting

Sampled on 17/09/2011


Clear, bright golden amber with lighter golden highlights.


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


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.


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