Nose: On approach, some light floral perfume balancing with delicate fresh herbs before the rich wood character of the ex bourbon barrels takes control. Sweet vanilla mingles with ripe orchard fruits bringing a touch of pineapple and grapefruit.
Taste: Typically, sweet with vanilla, cinnamon and a hint of clove. A little chilli brings that satisfying prickle softened by ripe fleshy fruit. Charred oak combines with barley to add to the complexity.
Finish: Soft sweet spices slowly fade to leave the earthy notes of charred wood and barley.
