2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Top marks for presentation in the glass. It has a pleasant depth of orange amber and a clean fluffy head. The nose is of dried fruit and toffee that gives a good hint of what is to come. But then, what happened to the flavour? Thin and astringent without any real body and character. Its a rate even if I donít rate it.
