Tasting Notes

Nose

Beautifully mature and initially very straw-like with barley, brittle honey and hints of pure vanilla. Opens up to show a touch of melon and a fair amount of buttery, dusty oak.

Palate

Oaky with vanilla, toffee and butter. Crisp citrus and the alcohol balance. Hints of straw-like barley and honey come through but the toffeed oak is omnipresent. \n

Finish

The weight of oak grips and bitters, but some sweet malt and barley attempt to counter-balance. \n

Comment

Spent a long time in the cask as the oak is dominant.
