(Lot # LLJA0001914. Has been in a bottle with very low fill level for the last several years)
NOSE: Mild malt and bourbon notes. A flowery scent which is a bit dark (as opposed to light and summery), perhaps some heather and hints of honey. Some woody notes as well. Improved with water, which brought out orchard fruits and some barley. (85p)
TASTE: The arrival is a little tame, wood and some honey, but little malt or fruit. On the mid palate i also find more wood than malt or fruitiness. Water made it a little sweeter. (80p)
FINISH: The finish is also a but wood dominated and a bit astringent and peppery although it also has some honey sweetness. Improved a bit with water. (83p)
