3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of Milos- As the descriptor says, it is honey gold. Deep honey. Nose is full of honey too. Lots of malts and sugars, orange peel, a bit alcoholic. Tastes sweet but not balanced. Syrupy malts and citrus peel essence meet candied malts and browns sugars are overwhelming at times. Slick, syrupy finish is sweet and lengthy. Thanks Milos!
