Review and Tasting

Sampled on 11/06/2016

Appearance

Clear, mid to deep golden amber.

Aroma

Zesty orange, vanilla, white chocolate fudge and hazelnuts with nutmeg and faint back pepper. More woody with water amplifying almond and biscuit.

Taste

Pear drops, dried apple, almond paste, white chocolate and black pepper. Go easy with the water but with the merest splash, fabulously rich toasted almond / amaretto notes emerge.

Aftertaste

Vanilla, surprisingly dry black tea tannins and lingering oaky finish after such a rich fruity palate.

Overall

Fruity and rich with white chocolate, pear drops and dried fruit. Balanced by black tea tannins and an oaky garnish.
