Review and Tasting

Sampled on 03/02/2016

Appearance

(sample 2015 release) Clear, dark coppery amber with bronze highlights.

Aroma

Toasty oak and roasted almond, golden syrup/treacle and maple syrup with floral lavender and violet notes.

Taste

Big yet silky with leather, tobacco, vanilla and cinnamon spice. The faint floral notes on the nose continue. Benefits from the merest splash of water.

Aftertaste

Spicy notes turn more curry-like (in a good way) with hints of fennel.

Overall

Dry, leathery and toasty with nutty dry wood, vanilla, cinnamon spice and faint floral notes.
