Nose: A superb start on wood smoke and quince jelly. Toasted oak after that with vanilla and hints of overripe apples. A little cedar wood too.
Palate: The oak becomes more obvious than on the nose but other than that it’s a sweet, fruity and vanilled malt that’s very sippable. Cinnamon over a mirabelle pie, white pepper, a little barley sugar, a little liquorice… All pleasure.
Finish: medium long, with the tannins and the vanilla coating ripe plums. Comments:
