Review and Tasting


Sampled on 24/04/2016

Appearance:

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma:

Crème anglaise, leather, toasty oak, tobacco leaf, roasted brasil nuts and spice (cinnamon and nutmeg). More buttery, pasty and vanilla with water.

Taste:

Dry toasty, spicy, faintly salty oak perfectly balanced by rich honey and vanilla. Water opens and amplifies.

Aftertaste:

Honey, vanilla and toasty oak.

Overall:

Incredibly big generous malt with superb balance between honeyed richness and dry, spicy, toasted oak.
