Clear, deep coppery amber with burnished copper highlights.
Blackberry, blueberry and boiled sweets with freshly sawn oak, vanilla and faint cinnamon spice. Water releases vanillins from the oak.
Astringently dry piney oak with sugary sweetness, jammy fruit and peppery spice. Water is needed to wet the oak and reveal spicy fruit.
Jammy fruit with cinnamon and clove spiced oak. A tad over oaked but this sherry influenced malt likes water.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
