Fra 0,75 keramikkflaske på RBHD-samling hos Odd Gunnar, april-17: dyp gylden, og en symfoni av honning og eik i aroma og smak (Sigmund). Snev av kvalitetscider. Vidunderlig drikke.

mcberko (18979) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2015
2009 vintage. 750mL bottle, pours a deep dark amber mahogany with a tiny white head. Aroma smells like my grandparents’ old den, with earthy root notes and medium sweet honey. Flavour follows with the earthy root notes and medium honey sweetness. Super earthy and rooty. Unusual, but wonderfully complex and elegant. Excellent.
