From the exquisite aroma there is no mistaking the influence of the ex-Bourbon casks with the light sweet spicy notes of vanilla, cinnamon and even a tincture of clove. All balanced with apples and pears, some charred wood and freshly cut hay. The initial sip is a burst of rich flavours, sweet with vanilla delicately bolstered by black peppercorns, reluctantly giving way to a succulent fruity mid-section before slowly fading to leave a very satisfying grassy cereal conclusion. The fullness of the body fades quite quickly but leaves behind a lingering succulent flavour of barley and oak. A touch of creamy dairy fudge and dark chocolate adds to the complexity.
