Clear, mid-golden amber.

Heather honey, wild herbs, linseed oil, a wisp of smoke, a hint of pear and a slight whiff of fiberglass resin.

Nutty - walnut and hazelnut, spicy, dry finish.

Initial rich and fruity honeyed pear and apple quickly dries with oak and smoky vanilla before finishing nutty and spicy.
