4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a rich copper color with great clarity. The nose is a mixture of sweet apples, burnt sugar, warm booze and a touch of spice. The palate is warm and boozy with a nice apple pie sweetness with added complexity of butterscotch, tannic apple peel and a long apple finish. Warms you from the belly up !
