Review and Tasting

Sampled on 10/10/2016


Clear, golden amber with shades of rose gold.


Acorns, orchard fruit, honeysuckle and spice. Water amplifies orchard fruitiness revealing waxiness.


Peppery spice and pear fruit with waxiness, ginger and clove. A dash of water brings this malts elements into kilter, revealing black tea, blackcurrant and menthol cough sweets.


Waxy, leathery, soft malty finish with orchard fruit and mild spice.


Waxy leather, orchard fruit and mild spice, this malt is incredibly quaffable – the sample provided was all too small. Incredibly fruity and sprightly for a 37 year old.
