Cooking apples in a wooden crate with hints of toffee and ripe banana.
Something of a surprise after the nose with a good blast of tar malt, salt and flint.
Long finish grips with malty warmth.

Considering its positioning as a super premium blend has been reflected in our rating.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
