should we try "tasting notes" again?
Nose: Honey, heather, I sense a sweetness like bananas as well
Colour: a deeper reddish gold than the 18.
Nose: Definitely honey in there as well as the heather. And close as I can come in that final note is still bananas.
Palate: Honey, sweetness from sherry notes, malt surfaces after a bit and a hint of saltiness, not overbearing 'though, very subtle. Apples, Ganga? Maybe that's the sweetness I can't describe... yes maybe a crisp winter spy.
Finish: Nice long and low, but there's a cereal flavour in the finish, somewhat like wheatabix. Odd I'd not noticed that before. Warms the belly and a gentle feeling of warmth infuses the body. What a pleasing little dram!
