Review and Tasting
Sampled on 07/05/2012
Clear, mid golden amber with bright golden highlights.
Biscuity vanilla with sherry, overripe fudgy banana and furniture polish.
Lovely nuttiness emerges (brazil nut, almond) over a fruity (green apple), vanilla cereal grain base. Faint peatyness.
Nuttiness lasts through the long lightly smoked finish.
