Tasting Notes

Nose

Intense, oily, marzipan coated banana and malt. A slight feintiness in the background and the oak grips, but it has a lovely depth and some almost Amontillado nutty notes.

Palate

Malty and nutty with again a subtle Amontillado character. Straightforward but deep with vanilla, charred oak, thick honey, barley, hazelnuts and heather. \n

Finish

Superb length, full of wood spiceand slightly drying tannins. The honey adds balance.\n

Comment

Lots going on, a few too many wrinkles for me.
