Review by Forty Creek

Colour

Deep copper

Nose

Notes of malted cereal accented with vanilla and cocoa. There are hints of almond and coconut that follow. Soft oak tannins and espresso notes appear on the finish

Palate

Luxuriously creamy, yet balanced with spicy flares of pepper, cinnamon and ginger

Finish

Very long, spicy and refreshingly citric with lots of ginger and grapefruit pith

Note

For our 5th limited release in 2011, we took a different approach. We focused in on the grain –highlighting the taste of the varietal grains and showcasing the complexity of the aromas and tastes. The result was an unparalleled harmony of flavours.
