Tasting Notes

Nose

Young and still immature with fresh cut grass and the faintest waxy honey giving a lift above the alcohol.

Palate

The tell-tale signs of youth: citrus zest and barley concentrate. Yet the middle is magnificent with acacia honey and oak and some salty, tangy slightly peaty notes.

Finish

Long, chocolatey, a hint of oranges and warm spices. The balance is pretty nearly perfect.

Comment

Despite the worrying nose, to taste this has a bit of everything, in just the right amounts. A real collector's item. And don't add water.
