Nose
Shy and subtle to begin with. Herbal barley, granulated sugar and thick, lightly oiled apricot. The oak appears with a pleasant toffeed / buttery demeanour and with time the aromas become quite fragrant.
Palate
Crisper and more mineral and citric than the nose would suggest, but the toffee and vanilla notes move in quickly. Good depth of barley, honey and off-sweet fruit with balancing herbal and mineral notes.
Finish
Quite citric and mineral with a light mouth-watering, juicy finish.
Comment
Dense, succulent and very enjoyable.

Nose
A pleasure to breathe in! Reminiscent of a stack of malted barley, soft and fruity with tones of fresh fruit cake, a touch of almond near the end.
Palate
Medium bodied with good intensity and balance, baked apples, cinnamon and vanilla finished with clean soft fudge.
Finish
A touch of brine, mid length finish, well balanced and very clean.
Comment
A pleasure to imbibe, with the flavours taking turns and enchanting my palate at every sip. A touch difficult to get my head around at first, a little breathing and water goes a long way.
