Nose
Oaky. Fresh wood. Opens up on fruit. Apples cooked in the oven with cinnamon and honey. Dry mushrooms.An earthy touch.
Palate
Crisp. Malty,with a hint of toasted coffee beans. Oak is better integrated than on the nose. Gets nuttier. Ginger.
Finish
Warm,dry,nutty.
Comment
A decent dram. Needs time to settle down and tone the oakiness on the nose down.
