Intro: A 375ml bottle with the numbers 2016 and 09 on different locations on the cork. Haven’t been able to find a consensus on what this means exactly. Poured into a Lindemans flute glass.
Appearance: It poured a clear copper brown colour with a thin tanned head that kind of sticks around and leaves some nice lacing.
Aroma: Had a hard time trying to describe this, but I would say fruity plum, prunes and apple, light tartness, butterscotch and brown sugar.
Taste: Candi sugar, plum and apples. Sweet and lightly tart.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with light carbonation.
Overall: This was an ok Faro. I’m actually in two minds as to whether I really I enjoyed this though. After going through the whole bottle, I’m on the fence.
