The Horizon Tasting Notes
Official tasting notes
Nose: Mouthwatering brown sugar and ripe tropical fruits.
Taste: Melting pot of malted honey, oak depth, silk rum, vanilla and caramelised banana.
Finish: Buttery toffee with orange zest.
Ed's tasting notes
Colour: Pale straw. Holds a high tide mark on my glass, before multiple little legs slowly start to form and sink down the sides of my copita.
Nose: A delicate, floral nose with melon, vanilla, and citrus notes including lemon. A gentle, soft malt note in the back.
Palate: A smooth mouthfeel. Vanilla cream, more melon and lemon are joined by bananas. Perhaps a very soft vanilla fudge sweetness.
Finish: A medium finish which crescendos through that vanilla cream on the palate, to a little wood spice, and then leaves my mouth feeling refreshed and ready for another sip.
