Review and Tasting

Sampled on 19/11/2011

Appearance

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma

Unctuous moist fruit cake nose with plum dried fruit, almond, splash of rich sherry and marzipan. Faint but alluring floral aroma.

Taste

Rich, fruity palate with gentle clove spice, buttery oak, apple juice reduction and toasted almonds and linseed oil impregnated leather.

Aftertaste

Long, gently spiced complex finish with lingering oaky vanillins and a gentle wisp of smoke.
