Clear, coppery amber with thin slow falling tears.
Initial bread dough-like whiff of new make spirit gives way to old wardrobe oak, fruitcake and faint bonfire smoke.
Smoky heavily oaked palate with generous spice (nutmeg, cinnamon and cardamom) and fainter walnut notes. Best described as being young and precocious.
Long, smoky crème brûlée finish with lingering bitter spicy oak.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
