The nose is quite rich with notes of crisp cereal and sugary barley. There is a farmy freshness with beautiful notes of hay, drying in the sun and somewhere in the distance a wood fire is tapering with that organic grace one can only find in the Home Counties in July. The cereal notes in the palate are intense and sublime. There is a fullness of body and the barley dances with blithe adolescence. The crispness of the sugar sweetness is wondrous and as the oak rises it brings chewy tannins and oily pine notes that, with caramel, soften the proposal. The finish is long with a combination of oaked spice and barley sugar with soft tannins.
