Nose: Green apples and honey lead into red apples and cinnamon. New leather, salted shortbread and maraschino notes with meringue.
Palate: Initial white pepper slowly reveals baked and green apples before gentle oak takes hold.
Finish: Fading pepper and a late note of apple sauce near the start of a long, drying oak finish.
Overall: Creamy, slightly spicy, apple and oak character. Truly delicious.
