The colour of bright golden straw. On nosing one gets great wafts of vanilla cream custard, notes of dried fruits and slight dalliances of candied ginger. At the back you’ll find slight notes of gummed fruit candies and ripe melon!
Considering its strength, the palate is surprisingly smooth! With the predominant bourbon barrel notes of oak, vanilla and honey with a lingering initial sweetness. Which then moves to a complex myriad of soft juicy fruits and a finishing of dried apricots!!
Youthful and vibrant but oh so accomplished! Well done
