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.
