From Ian Mcleod – 40%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Apples, raisins, honey, vanilla, toasted walnuts, mild smoke, a whiff of nail polish, crushed black pepper.
Palate: Quite sweet, caramel, toffee, raisins, hints of candied citrus, nutmeg and pepper.
Finish: Medium long, sweet and slightly spicy, minimally smoky.
Overall: Not really an unpleasant blend, but the flavours are just a bit too generic to lift it significantly above the major brands that sell for less.Rating: 72/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
