3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Pigís Ear 2014, thanks to Jackie & Simon. It pours deep mahogany brown with a small beige head. The nose is rich, toasty, toffee, crunchy nut cornflakes, fruit cake, butterscotch, nougat and Scottish tablet. The taste is sweet, boozy, fruit cake, syrupy, raisin, date, honey, warming alcohol, earth, toast, brandy notes, light bitterness and stewed apple. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. A slap of bitterness counteracts some of the sweetness. All comes together rather well.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, pours a deep orange-brown with no head, hints of Seville orange, pepper and chocolate toffee on the nose. Syrupy and dry-sweet, with more orange notes over a warming caramel body. The alcohol is well hidden, emerging as a drying effect that moderates the caramel and brings out an earthy bitter edge.
