Nose: Crushed leaves and apricot: an unusual, lively combination but dulled by some vanilla.
Palate: Lively on the palate with an intensely sweet maltiness pitted against some starker, spicier oaky notes. First-rate balance.

Palate: Fresh, flowers, oily, nutty. A hint of vanilla lightly clean maltiness.
Finish: Fragrant. Just a hint of smoke.
