    • Nose
      85 85
      Green apples, slightly spicy and quiche.

      A fresh scent, through the combination of a hint of pear with honey. Light cocoa, pepper, vanilla powder, hay and wood. Nuts and leather seal the scent for me.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Pear, apple and very waxy. Later it becomes a bit sharper due to the alcohol and pepper. Peach with apricots, nuts and lemon grass with honey. The taste also makes me refer to hay.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Pepper, pear, apple, peach and ginger. Walnut, wood and some honey in the finish. The viscosity ensures the lasting long finish.

    SMWS Tasting Notes: A delicious array of sweetness was on offer on the nose neat; honey, butterscotch, fudge, cinnamon-sugared popcorn alongside the minty freshness of eucalyptus and spearmint. On the palate neat, we opened a box of finest liquid-filled pralines of milk and dark chocolate. Biting through the chocolate Williams pear brandy, apricot or cherry liquor gave us a lovely sweet fruity alcoholic kick. When we added water a freshly starched white shirt at first before we got our hands dirty and planted a new flower bed. The taste now had plenty of fruit, fruit cake, fruit mints and vanilla cream sponge with a long finish of peppered pineapple slices sprinkled with sugar.
