There is a sweetness to the nose with crisp clarity. Notes of cereal; malty barley and porridge oats with hints of wheat and a gristy, floury character. The palate is quite rich with a lovely smoothness. There is an equilibrium between barley sweetness and the tannic oak underneath. A development of fruit with gentle astringency, hints of zesty lemon with a little mandarin with honeyed oats. The finish is full of sugared barley and malt with silken ease as it makes its departure.
