Tasting Notes

Nose

Malty. Cereal. Toasted bread. Very farmlike. Hay loft. Wet dog. Some floral notes coming through like after a gentle rain in a garden. Dried fruit. Raisins and apricot. Dried apples.

Palate

Thick, rich. An explosion of exotic fruit. Passion fruit, guava. Dark chocolate.

Finish

Drying on oak. A bitter edge.

Comment

Oak is not as prevailing on the nose as on the palate. An exotic profile. Reminds me of Irish whiskey. Interesting richness. Avoid water.
