Restrained.Grassy.Herbal tea. Verbena.Medicinal but on the herbal tea side not the TCP one.Toblerone.
Palate
Thick,syrupy.Sweet.Cereal bowl. Squeezed orange.
Finish
Spicy,dry. Fizzy.
Comment
Very satisfying.A beautiful bourbon cask maturation. Superb to match with a cheesecake or lemon meringue pie. But the sting of the bee must be blunt,I did not feel it.

Beautifully balanced and outstanding.
