Description

At first nosing the Panel detected dried banana chips, oak shavings, almond butter and runny honey; lots of richness, and a feeling of creaminess and big texture. With water we got more honeyed notes along with fruit flapjack, golden syrup sponge cake, cloudy lemonade and jam doughnuts – a wealth of delicious baked pastry and cake vibes. The neat palate opened with candied citrus rinds, sweet granola and vanilla ice cream, with wee hints of barley sugars and red chilli flakes adding warmth. Reduction brought honeysuckle, pine sap, freshly planed oak and a final extra drizzle of honey. This exhibits a surprisingly strong level of cask activity for a second fill we thought.
