more white pepper and cacao and a touch of spice with a long finish.
Body or Mouth Feel:
Light body with a silky mouth feel.
Beautiful balance of ethanol and winter wheat starch at first hint. No detectable impurities. Layered notes of root vegetables in the back such as beets, potatoes, carrots and ginger. Light citrus oils surface after 2-3 minutes.
Mouthwatering, medium long, with white pepper and rhubarb notes.
Front of Palate:
Medium dry, inside of lips and tip of the tongue opening up progressively, notes of caramel and toffee.
Full presence, top of palate channeling the caramel into a fresh baked bread note, which continues to dominate. Light needle on the side of palate and inside of cheeks with hints of citrus peel.
Dryness: Dry – medium dry.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - Enticing and bright on the nose with clean, floral characteristics blending with deeper spicy orange peel and sea brine. Rich and viscous with an almost toasty, nutty edge followed by mellow notes of citrus and a soft, yet exciting, almost salty finish. (Apr 2014)
Wine Enthusiast 93 points - Made in the Western Rockies of Canada, Aylesbury is clean and crisp, with lightly sweet, citrusy characteristics. It was created by bartenders to blend well in cocktails-mission accomplished. This would be nice simply chilled and mixed with dry vermouth, too. (Oct 2013)
