Donatus White 2015

After trying several of these over the years, enjoying them, but not having my hair blown back, I’ve finally kept one a few years and understood what all the fuss is about. Beautiful golden colour (even if it did remind me of a urine sample), and fantastic creamy flavour. Perfect with the big bit of […]
