3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy deep amber-hued orange body with a small off-white head. Nose is honey, caramel, toffee, biscuits, hints of red fruits, raisins, grains and bread. Taste is caramel, raisins, prunes, toffee, biscuits, vanilla and hints of burnt sugar, grass and port wine. Medium body and carbonation. Pleasantly accessible despite a fair amount of complexity, the stylish elegance of this series have yet to fail me. A bit more body would have made it even better, but all in all this is a very nice ESA.
