Review and Tasting


Sampled on 01/02/2011

Appearance:

Crystal clear.

Aroma:

A wonderfully aromatic and complex nose with almond, pecan pie, aniseed, and marzipan.

Taste:

Whatever you do, go easy when you dilute this delicate monster - keep above 45%. Delicate smoke, fruity spice with mellowing sweet almond. It's big, and yet strangely tame.

Aftertaste:

Salty smoke lingers on the palate like a big fat cigar dowsed with salty soya sauce. Not for tender palates but discerning drinkers will rejoice.
