Description

The Panel found the neat nose to be wildly herbaceous at first; some lovely aromas of green medicinal herbs muddled into cough syrups plus undertones of wintergreen aniseed and boiled lime sweets. We also noted mint leaves, nettles and white grapes. Reduction upped its beery, bready qualities; lovely rich notes of real ales, sandalwood, petrichor and malted milk biscuits. The palate was naturally sweet at first, with barley sugars, sweet breakfast cereals, honey, lemon rind and baled hay. Water brought more lightly medicinal herbs, milk bottle sweeties, cooking apples, golden sultanas and the fattiness of camphor.
