Nose
Beautifully mature and initially very straw-like with barley, brittle honey and hints of pure vanilla. Opens up to show a touch of melon and a fair amount of buttery, dusty oak.
Palate
Oaky with vanilla, toffee and butter. Crisp citrus and the alcohol balance. Hints of straw-like barley and honey come through but the toffeed oak is omnipresent.
Finish
The weight of oak grips and bitters, but some sweet malt and barley attempt to counter-balance.
Comment
Spent a long time in the cask as the oak is dominant.

Nose
A slight prickle to this nose which gives off chilli powder, white pepper, liquorice rolls and some lanolin elements. The spirit and the oak are driving this.
Palate
A pretty direct palate that is full of spirit and sweet oak in equal measure. Sweet corn with melted, salted butter.
Finish
Like the palate, simple and direct with some apricot notes.
Comment
All spirit and oak.
