Appearance: Pale to medium amber.
Nose: Light smoke, stone fruit, malt cookies, ginger, caramel, light pineapple, raisins and vanilla.
Palate: Very sweet, with caramel, honey, vanilla and spices. Light banana.
Finish: Honey, vanilla, caramel, pepper, cinnamon.
With Water: A bit helps. More smoke comes out, malt sugar. Gets softer and even sweeter.
Overall: Young and very sweet, with nice spices and vanilla notes. This definitely shows potential with its rather exceptional spiciness. Of course, the fan boys are howling in delight by now. This is not fantastic yet, but maybe it will be someday.
