Review and Tasting

Sampled on 25/09/2015

Appearance

Clear, mid-deep golden amber.

Aroma

Honey, soft leather, Demerara sugar, toasty oak, vanilla crème anglaise. Lavender emerges with water.

Taste

Full-bodied and honeyed with orange zest, bitter toasty oak tannins and coal dust. Faint notes of black liquorice and lavender – practically with water.

Aftertaste

Long toasty finish with herbal notes, coal dust, pear and faint liquorice.

Overall

Starts rich and honeyed but ends dry and toasty with notes of coal dust and along the journey delivers zesty orange, liquorice and lavender but needs a splash of water to properly reveal itself.
