Review and Tasting

Sampled on 18/08/2014

Appearance

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma

Caramel, buttery butterscotch and barley sugar with light nutmeg and cinnamon spice. Water amplifies the spice with candied ginger and ginger biscuit emerging.

Taste

Full-bodied with more caramel and butterscotch, vanilla fudge and chocolate with assertive ginger biscuit and cinnamon spice. Water tames the spice, revealing dried apricot fruit, zesty citrus and faint honey sweetness.

Aftertaste

Ginger biscuit, orange marmalade and cinnamon spice. Toffee and spice throughout.
