"Soft notes of glue and wood shavings, accompanied by rose petals, raisins, as well as a touch of orange zest. The mouthfeel is pleasant and rather thick, with a good amount of spices, and a soft sweetness, expressing itself in the form of sultanas and vanilla. Overall a good entry level expression, with plenty of promise towards the future."
