The nose is quite light and fresh. There are notes of cut flowers and sweet barley, heather roots and Bramley apples, a fudge note develops with a touch of toasty oak spice. The palate is of medium-body with superb balance. There are notes of soft, whirling smoke and toasty oak. There is a defied spice note with pollen and beeswax and toffee, some herbs and barley. The finish is of good length with a gentle warmth.
