The nose is quite full with cereal notes in spades. Notes of cut grass and hay, smoke from a lit hay bale and pine oils, arak, fennel and buttered granary bread. The palate is of medium-body. Notes of oak and cereal with barley sweetness. The whole is smoothed over by caramel, notes of fruit cake, burnt toast and candied peels. The finish is of sound length with plenty of barley sugar.
