Tasting Notes

Nose

A full on honey bomb, caramel pennies, honey roasted chicken, open packets of jelly babies. There is a spicy side to it too with a rye bread pep, toasted chilli almonds and cracked black pepper.

Palate

Now the alcohol shows its face, water releases more autumnal notes. A creaminess and hints of Terry’s Chocolate Orange.

Finish

Short and drying. A little salty like bacon rind. Water lengthens and sweetens this out.

Comment

A game of two halves, two totally different personalities with water and neat.
