For years I've been trying to get folk to notice this stuff. It's not going to startle you in a festival amongst all those big hitters (although I've always thought it was good), but sit down with a bottle of this and you won't regret it. This was the last dregs of the bottle and another one will have to come soon. I hope the current batch is as good.
Honey and lemon cough sweets, star anise, light and refreshing. Grassy with lemon refreshers. There's some dried oak there. Like a carpenter's workshop in the summer, with a pile of malted barley in the corner. Clean as a whistle and quite charming.
Zingy lemon refreshers, surrounded by a multitude of tiny popping spice bombs. The honey is there on the palate too, but it's finely spread and delicate. Sugar sparkles in the background amongst more light oak.
Seems like it dies quite quickly, but then it begins to wash your palate with brown sugar, cinammon and chewed pencil. The more you drink the woodier the finish gets, but it remains delicate.
