The nose is of good body with a spirity sweetness. There are notes of marmalade and orange peel, hints of cut flowers and a vague iodine note. There are some shades of malted barley and cereal sweetness. The palate is quite full with a well-balanced sweetness. There are notes of apple skins, calvados and chewy oak tannins. There is a charred wood note which develops into a gently glowing ember, notes of the coast creep up with a good nutty oiliness. The finish is long and very punchy.
