    Very elegant, delicate and balanced malt. I find the ever lingering finish its biggest asset, although it is very nice altogether. There is no wow in there but the satisfaction is complete.

    • Nose
      First come the sherry and cedar box; lemon zest; some grassy notes with time. Big malty notes. Hint of smoke? Some roasted nuts (Brazil nuts). The sherry sweetness disolves with time.
    • Taste
      Starts sweet with the wood overpowering the rest. But the sensation is nice and not overwhelming. Cinnamon and ginger. 
    • Finish
      Very long; sweet and spicy, some earthy notes as well. Lingering with some nice honey and malt sweetness.
