From a first fill ASB, this is a deep gold colour. A beautifully rounded nose of apricot sponge, rich fruits (possibly gooseberries), with Dundee cake and vanilla ice cream drizzled in butterscotch. Behind, a hint of freshly sawn oak. Unreduced, it lights up the taste buds with a lovely spiciness, slightly mouth drying with a hint of sandal wood. A dash of water brings up a more perfumed nose – fragrant blossom, oaky notes and ripe bananas. Velvety smooth on the palate, some acidity and a light sweetness with a rounded mouthfeel and medium to long finish.
