Gravicask (PBF2015, Wednesday) (7+:4:7+4:15=3.7++)
Pale marmalade colour. Lovely sweet aroma, lots of apple, but a great sharp sourness too. Taste follows. Lovely crisp palate, no sign of 7.5% at all. Great balance between the sweetness of the rum and the the dryness of the underlying cider. A great end to the day!
