    For those on here who are interested in blends here is the make up of this bottling, I think this sort of transparency is a good thing but % of each component would be even better.

    • Nose
      Notes from online tasting

      Colour:
      Shiny gold

      Nose:
      Tree resin, spruce needles, wood glue, fermented pear, a little pungent paint, potato peelings. With a little time in the glass, nice solid caramel and malt will come through. With herbal butter.
    • Taste
      Soft, sweet start. Then good alcohol, dry grain, yeast, slightly malty. Dry wood, plus a good load of bitterness. Walnut liqueur and with it again, the fermented pear.
      Becomes much sweeter with the second sip. More honey and a little fig will follow. Plus Haribo wine gummy bears.
    • Finish
      Long. Bitterness and alcoholic spiciness. But then it becomes creamier and is replaced by honey and vanilla.
