    Full orange gold color. Nose has juicy fruit and coconut along with pronounced oak notes, a hint of smoky raspberry sweetness - profile for this period of Local Barley expressions. The nose is big and assertive. With a harder nosing fall harvest Concord grape must and fresh cut apples. The palate entry is sweet and hugely complex than transitions to a big looming oak notes out of the depths that provides even greater complexity, and might make you choke if you greedily took too big a mouthful (check!). Not for those with delicate temperaments. Long sweet oaky finish with touches of cedar cigar boxes. On the more austere end of the spectrum for 1966 Local Barley Casks, but the oak driven complexity is just wonderful. Close to perfect. Maybe perfect.
