Nose: Bread and butter pudding, chocolate covered toffee, mint toffee, banana skin. Spirity at first, an alcohol prickle, then the oak comes through.
Palate: Big, bold character with plenty of oak grip, chilli spiced crackers, wasabi peas, espresso coffee. Then a maple syrup sweetness and raspberry jam.
Finish: Long and moreish. Very jammy and the moves to a coffee note.
