Nose: Surprisingly fresh given the cask age. There are notes of freshly cut fruit salad, hints of apple peel, soft oak and manuka honey. Dried grass.
Palate: Nutmeg, hazelnut and pepper. Spent match heads and more of those apple notes. Very malty with beautiful spices from the cask.
Finish: Dessert wine and hints of crisp citrus. Peppery finish.
