Clear, golden amber.
Like walking into an old-fashioned sweet shop with the smell of icing sugar in the air. Very faint whiff of sulphur and cardamom.
Slightly sweet and very fruity with green apple skin, apple pie and a peppery cinnamon spice tingle.
Long cinnamon and stewed apple finish. Be warned more than a wee splash of water will drown this sweetie.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
