The nose is quite subtle and light. There are notes of apple blossom, barley sugar, dried cereals and sweet porridge oats. There a hints of cut hay and dried grass with rosewater and a touch of dried fruit. The palate is quite warm and of medium-body. There are notes of dried herbs and Earl Grey tea, notes of white pepper and cloves. The oak is soft and chewy and develops with a touch of caramel into the finish which is quite short but nicely sweet with rubbed petal notes.
