Comment
Nothing wrong with it but hardly exciting.

Nose
Woody. Sawdust. A mix of freshly cut wood and damp boards. Cereal. A touch of bread dough. Hint of cardboard. Undimensional.
Palate
Very sweet. Quite refreshing. All sorts liquorice sweets.Greengage marmalade. Wood is well integrated.
Finish
Medium. Spicy. Ground ginger. Tamed by a malty comeback.
Comment
Surprising. So much wood on the nose predicts an unbalanced palate. It is not so. The palate makes up for the disappointment on the nose.
