(bottle No. H015452) Crystal clear.
Reminiscent of brown bread crust with light vanilla and dusted with black pepper.
Strangely soft mouthfeel yet with baked grain, cracked black pepper heat and delicate vanillins. (We suspect subtly sweetened with some added flavour).
Spiced, slightly sweet toasted finish with lasting peppery prickle.
