Review and Tasting

Sampled on 08/10/2011


Clear, deep golden.


Musty spicy nose, reminiscent of an antique shop with aromas of toffee apple, cream of soda vanilla and linseed oil impregnated cloth.


If the nose is antique shop then the palate is stately home furnished with plenty of old oak. Gently spiced with nutmeg and clove and wonderfully rounded with a touch of maple syrup and almond nuttiness.


Majestic, gently oaked lightly spiced finish.
