Nose
Sylvestry. Pine needles. Wet cider cellar walls. Cooked apples in oven with cinnamon and honey. A touch of beeswax.
Palate
Very smooth if not too soft. Sweet oakiness giving way to a drier edge with some astringency at mid-palate. Ripe hazelnuts.
Finish
A bit grippy. Oak never gives up.
Comment
That malt could easily be thrown in a calvados blind tasting, with aged oaky individuals.

Dave Broom

75
Nose
Soreen malt loaf, candlewax light sultana. Hint of varnish shows some maturity plum. Ripe and broad with raisin and light sweet spices. Balanced.
Palate
Light start then grips well in the centre. Cedar. Fairly tannic in time.
Finish
Orange peel nut and light smoke.
Comment
Decent balance. Worth a look.
