Hess Alambic 5 yo Brandy

From the quaint R62 town of Montagu, comes a very much unknown 5 year old potstill brandy from Mimosa Lodge.  My rating is 16/25

MY VIEW:

Nose: 8/10
Dried apricot, oak wood and vanilla
Taste: 6/10
Liqourice, apricots slightly overpowered by a strong spirit undertone
Finish: 3/5
Dry, with lingering anise and subtle coconut .

TOTAL: 16/25

Serving suggestions: Block or two of ice to subdue the slightly strong spirit taste profile .
