Nose: Melon, ethereal, ripe rosy apples, delicate smoke.
Palate: Gristy malt, touch of black pepper, grassy, oaky, orchard fruit.
Finish: Fairly uninteresting, malt, fruity, oak.
I bought this for a friend as a wedding present. Both he and his new wife love it. Fruity, punchy, oaky. All good!
This is another boutique-ish blend that's been out on the market for a few years. Very good! And at a reasonable price point, too. Will definitely buy another bottle.
