Palate: Quite sweet, lighttropical fruit. Quite simple and clean.Malted milk (ovaltine).
Comment: Nothing wrong with it but hardly exciting.
Nose: Woody. Sawdust. A mix of freshly cut wood and damp boards. Cereal. A touch of bread dough. Hint of\rcardboard. Undimensional.
Palate: Very sweet. Quite refreshing. All sorts liquorice sweets.Greengage marmalade. Wood is well integrated.
Finish: Medium. Spicy. Ground ginger. Tamed by a malty comeback.
Comment: Surprising. So much wood on the nose predicts an unbalanced palate. It is not so. The palate makes up for the disappointment on the nose.
