Clear, bright golden honey.
A mellow but enticing buttery malty nose with floral honeysuckle, dried banana chips and a whiff of mint humbug sweets.
Buttery, malty palate with grapy wine notes apparent but well integrated with soft red pepper spice.
Grapey, pepper corn spiced finish with fresh coriander leaves and lingering buttery malt. This will appeal to fellow lovers of wine cask finishing but perhaps would have benefitted from a couple of years less bourbon oak.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
