The nose is of medium-body with a defined clarity. There are notes of juicy esters with a touch of calvados, Commice pear and apple peels. A good barley sugar note with cut herbs. The palate is quite full with a richness. Notes of sherried peels and notes of fragrant oaks, hints stemmy dried hay, notes of dried fruits and wood resin. Finish is long and supple with apple blossom and sultanas.
