    Nice nose and okay
    palate, but in the finish, the oak overpowers.
    • Nose
      The nose is fresh and
      spicy with loads of wood shavings. Warm and inviting. Then some white fruit and
      gooseberries kick in. Cake. Herbal as well on green herbs. A hint of almond
      paste. Candied fruit.
    • Taste
      Rather soft on the
      palate. Light body. That is compensated somewhat by a lot of sweet malt and a
      mild bitter note as if from grapefruit mixed with walnuts. The spices are
      ginger and white pepper. Coriander? The oak is rather loud, making it a tad
      sharp.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium
      long and bitter. The wood goes over the top.
