Tasting Notes

Nose

Malty and oaky. Bracken, wet straw, damp wood. Opens on soft fruit and\rcider apple. Aniseed hint.

Palate

Crisp. Sweet and bitter. Oak speaks up. Raisins, candied ginger, hazelnut cake. The oak grip keeps on. A distant yeasty note.

Finish

Dry, oaky.

Comment

An oaky character. Aromatic but a bit dour, especially on the palate.
