Review and Tasting

Sampled on 20/10/2011

Appearance

Clear, light golden with polished copper highlights.

Aroma

Wonderfully mellow nose with bee's wax, tar, cocoa, stewed apricot, dried fruit, overripe banana and citrus zest.

Taste

Velvety fruity palate, yet with assertive dry, pine woody spice and citrus.

Aftertaste

Long finish with wafts of smoke, dry oak, sherry and bitter chocolate.
