Tasting Notes

"Opens on a soft chalky note followed by subtle whiffs of malted barley, before it takes a turn into an orchard. Finally also a trace of marshmallow. The palate is quite creamy, but there's also some bitter wood, then moving on towards vanilla, lemon zest and a touch of sultanas. Lingering fruity notes and soft vanilla give this a nice semblance of complexity. Rather good overall."
