Nose
Malty and sweet. Honeycomb, bowl of cereals. Freshly sawed wood.
Palate
Round and light. A bit watery at midpalate. Refreshing. Mint toffee. Sweet maltiness. Honeyed apple compote with cinnamon. Oak is well integrated.
Finish
Fresh, drying on a spicy note. Ginger. Liquorice root.
Comment
Well balanced and aromatic. Honey is the key element.

Nose
Fruit malt loaf with strawberry jam. Chocolate coated cinder toffee with hints of caramel toffee. Fresh oak, sawmills.
Palate
Fairly gentle with the oak providing decent grip. Light and fresh with a little lemon balm and mint tea.
Finish
Refreshing and dry.
Comment
Not a bad drop at a decent age. A pre dinner discussive malt.
