    Amazing single cask bottling!
    • Nose
      Very sweet with pipe tobacco, ripe white grapes (almost must), vanilla, caramel and also some hay
    • Taste
      Amazing sweetness and tobacco again, burnt caramel, sweet spiciness, becoming more dry after some time, even slightly bitter
    • Finish
      Long with lots of fruitiness and woodspice

    Original Tasting Notes

    Carries a crunched sugar sweet nose initially - opening further to old fashioned hairdressing smells and autumnal fruit with barley hues. The palate is citric - carrying mixed peel, liquorice and warming spices - running to a barley sugar inspired finish with a twist of tobacco and more citrus. ( F )
