Review and Tasting

Sampled on 11/06/2016

Appearance

Clear, light to mid-golden amber.

Aroma

Green apple skin and ripe pear with creamy fruitcake, pear drops, dried strawberry and mild black pepper. Water harmonises, amplifying mild pencil shavings.

Taste

Medium-bodied and incredibly fruity with vanilla oak, ripe apple, pear drops and elegant Christmassy spice. As with the nose, water tones back fruit and amplifies spicy oak. Dilute to taste.

Aftertaste

Stewed apple and pear drops with lingering parma violet and very mild spicy oak.

Overall

Wonderfully fruity with pronounced stewed apple and pear drops with faint parma violet and a perfectly balanced spicy oak garnish.
