Tasting Notes

Nose

Mature. Cedar, tobacco, and light charred note (burning embers), turned earth then a herbal lift of fresh bay, dried sage and beeswax.

Palate

A palate spreader. Liquorous and rich with real intensity and a slightly acidic quality which is just balanced by that honeyed sweetness. Oak is quite firm and grippy.

Finish

Tight, slightly lean.

Comment

The oak is slightly too dominant to elevate it into the next category.
