Tasting Notes

Nose

An explosion of fruits: peach, bruised apples, black cherry, strawberry milkshake. In the background there is a sappy, hay-like quality.

Palate

Milk chocolate, spice and toasted oak.

Finish

More toasted oak and dry spice.

Comment

Dramatic, like a kiddie's sweetshop in a sawmill. One to try for interests sake, but I suspect that many hard-men malt fans will be put off by the perfumed character.
