Tasting Notes

Nose

Crisp, herbal grain aromas mingle with velvety American oak. Dusty barley and oak indicate older spirit may be at work. With time a touch of perfumed lime and gooseberry appears with toasty butter notes.

Palate

Plenty of toffeed oak, caramel and lactose notes. Oak dominates and dampens. A touch of crisp grain spirit breaks the stranglehold.\n

Finish

Good length with the cleansing grain and citrus coming through.\n

Comment

I had a sneaky feeling whilst nosing this that the oak would be too over-powering for the palate. I was correct in that assumption.
