Tasting Notes

Nose

Oily and a little fishy with gritty oak and violets. Honey balances the oak and becomes mature and sawdusty. Perfumed honey asserts; ginger root, liquorice and herbs appear.

Palate

Soft and mature with barley and oodles of luscious honey and sawdusty oak. Green apple and citrus comes through to balance the dusty tannins and honey. \n

Finish

Long and salty with the fleshy fruit and honey lingering along with a light mocha note. \n

Comment

Beautifully balanced. Gritty oak and coastal notes hint at an Islander but the oak and honey says Speyside. Grantown-on-sea?
