Review and Tasting

Sampled on 08/11/2010

Appearance

Clear, dark amber.

Aroma

Sweet cinnamon spice, hint of nutmeg, toffee apple, slightly treacled – almost Christmassy.

Taste

Rich, full-bodied with honeyed fruit cake, vanilla, toffee, creamy caramel, butterscotch, fudge and an orange marmalade.

Aftertaste

Ginger and nutmeg contribute to the spicy notes, which are the enduring flavours in the long caramel, vanilla finish.
