Tasted: Feb 2011
A deep, edgy and quite gristy nose. Initially it is a tad soapy with an almost old fashioned shaving soap quality. The honeyed sweetness from the finishing cask builds and a slight white floral top note appears along with a touch of white pepper and cinnamon. With time some dried grape and buttery oak puts in an appearance. A pleasant nose once one has got past the soapiness.
The palate is full and juicy with honey, vanilla custard and buttered pop corn notes. Some barley kicks in on the middle and the slightly piquant alcohol balances the sweetness. Crisp citrus and green fruits lead into a mouth watering finish. Very well balanced on the palate, beginning quite sweet but finishing dry and crisply.
