Review and Tasting

Sampled on 23/08/2014

Appearance

Clear, mid golden amber.

Aroma

Sultanas and raisins with buttery Eccles cake, vanilla and tropical fruit – papaya. Faint sulphur, aniseed and sooty earthy notes. Even more fruity with water.

Taste

Superbly balanced at 49% with strength countered by rich blackened fruit cake. Slight earthiness. Water exposes metallic note and draws out fennel.

Aftertaste

Long fruity finish with lingering spice.
