Heroes and Heretics Classic Series Tasting Notes
Nose: Butter, Caramel, oak and seashells.
Palate: White chocolate, cereal, toasted almonds and white pepper.
Finish: Mild chilli, elderflowers and savoury biscuits.
Colour: Natural colour. Pale lemon with tears that develop slowly before sinking down the sides of my copita in parallel legs.
Nose: Bright, fresh and inviting. Sweet apples and lemon citrus. Other lemon notes, this time sherbert lemons. Vanilla creme patissiere on light flaky pastry. The alcohol is well integrated, with no burn.
Palate: Medium mouthfeel. More of that creamy vanilla creme patissiere. Apple flan dusted with icing sugar and served with cream. Light oak and some wood spice.
Finish: Medium to long finish with warming spice, like spiced apple cider in the winter.
