Intensely flavoured, but while it shouted very loud I didn't necessarily enjoy everything it had to say.
Old Malt Cask
Aged 18 Years
Year of Bottling
Nose: Sappy tannins, crystallised ginger, and a fruit cake. A lint medical note and some smoke. Water brings up some new sawn oak, a raisiny sweetness and more spice.
Palate: A big, sappy, woody palate with barley sugars, smoke and ginger wine.
Finish: Tannic and smoky.
Comment: Intensely flavoured, but while it shouted very loud I didn't necessarily enjoy everything it had to say.
Nose: Melting butter and smoke. A smouldering bonfire. Smoked ham. Complex with notes of date and a touch of wood.
Palate: Interesting interplay between toasted nut, caramel, apple wood smoke. Great length and complexity though it is better neat.
Finish: Sweet oak and long.
Comment: This has balance. Like it.
