Staff Tasting Notes
Nose: Cherries and nuts soaked in brandy. Chocolate truffles and freshly charred oak, which threatens a light smokiness.
Palate: Sherry spice, mature oak with a little moss growth. Touches of white fruit and citrus. A slightly strange 'old' oak finish.
Comments: Enjoyable nose but palates loses the rich sweet nose for a drier, woodier palate.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Green apple and grapefruit aromas fuse before the sweet character of honeysuckle and mature oak comes through.
Palate: Full bodied and rounded. Elegant wood notes of toasted oak and cigar box become green fruits with apple and gooseberry.
Finish: Long finish with dried tea and tobacco leaf in balance with soft medicinal peatiness and wood smoke.
