COLOR: Amber

NOSE: Slightly spicy and drying, overall. Toffee apples and hints of honeycomb. Becomes fruitier: ripe autumn fruits combined with red berry sharpness. Some golden syrup sweetness. Reassuringly well balanced. Adding water brings up a waxier note initially, with traces of sweet chestnut and and then a whiff of smoke or charred wood.

TASTE: Without water, the flavor is sweet to start then drying in the finish. Warming, light and smooth; tending to delicate. Fresh fruit with spicy top notes.

FINISH: Drying. Pears and digestive biscuits, then delicately spiced with notes of cinnamon.

ABV: 46%


SIZE: 750 mL
