Appearance: Moderately deep golden amber colour

Density: Viscous and rich

Aromas: A very complex, multifaceted vinegar that evolves with time.  Initially slightly earthy and resinous on the nose, with roasted malt and (light roast) coffee bean notes; then the aromas develop with additions of candied apple, buckwheat/wild-flower honey, pine and spicy/hoppy notes; afterwards the nose becomes additionally layered with exotic aromas of jasmine, light citrus rind (orange and grapefruit) and both cooked and tropical fruit notes.

Palate: Richly sweet and balanced with zingy acidity, exhibits a palate is as expansive as the aromas; first there are intense flavours of roasted barley, browns sugar and sweet caramel; overripe golden pineapple, sweet grapefruit, biscuit and toasted pine nuts and resin follow; finish is lingering and complex with jasmine tea, melon, orange/lemon peel, and light soya sauce/miso paste notes.
