Gritty wood spices and no shortage of tannins, malt, barley and balancing creamy oak. The aromas are showing some maturity with an almost Armagnac-esque character and with time some lovely, dustycoffee notes.
A lovely melange of juicy barley, honey and light oxidation notes. Again the oak is mature and dusty with a touch of coffee and herbs. Seriously deep with a developing minerality.
Do we have a time traveller in our midst? This reminds me of old White Horse from the early 80s; slightly bitter caramel, but tempered with a lovely waft of floral smoke and vanilla custard tarts
Another nutty one: hazelnuts, some salted peanut notes, cream soda, caramel and fresh butter.
A little short, but sweet nonetheless.
Someone's been behind the wheel of the Delorean here. Either that or they have put something very interesting together.
