Tasting Notes

Nose

Great minerality and vanilla to this, salted caramel and sweet and salty popcorn. Stewed fruits here, pears in cider, apple tart with golden treacle.

Palate

So sweet, treacle lattice cakes, honeycomb and cinder toffee bars, orange chocolate and almond. Milk chocolate pennies and caramel syrup. Oak tempers the sweetness.

Finish

Satisfying and that oak prickle comes in at the end.

Comment

Takes its time to balance itself, but it does. A whole sensory and flavour work out.
