Tasting Notes

Nose

Funky. Cheddar cheese rind and light prune, then waxed jackets. After time in the glass sherried fruits emerge. It's considerably more straightforward with water - take your choice.

Palate

So soft it comes as a shock after such a direct nose. Gentle, smooth and almost shy with very gentle soft fruits.

Finish

Juicy, then light barley.

Comment

Just get the feeling that bottling at a slightly higher strength might have given it the kick it needs for the palate to balance the nose.
