Light. Pear drizzle. Hay. Golden malt. Faint white pepper. Green, cut lumber.
Most presently offers the fruity and malty notes.
Oily/viscous with a slight peppered heat texture (very nice mouth feel).
Pear drizzle carries over from the nose. Plenty of oak influence on this one. Interplay of bright orchard fruits and wood is nice and natural. Some malty/bready notes develop in the mid-palate. Across the back of the palate, transitioning to the finish, it shows white pepper and spices.
The first sip quickly faded into a semi-bitter, oaky note that clung on without much development.
On repeated tastings, this holds with some more dimensionality and less bitterness; each time there is a quick drop off to a palimpsest of the nose/palate's oaky, fruity, and oily notes. The remnant notes here are quite good, it's just that the finish drops off too quickly and doesn't have time for much development/complexity, leaving the finish wanting overall.
