Bottled at 43 per cent, the malty richness is kept interesting with a little spice that almost tastes like sultanas and gingerbread. It?s very well balanced between the fruit notes and its sweetness.
Nose: Cereals. Rich. Malt. Smoky espresso, honeycomb.
Palate: Soft, malty. Honey, lightly salted butter on toasted sultana loaf. Hints of tiramisu.
Finish: Good length, barley, toasted oats.
