Cask Number:Hogshead #305007
Nose: Light floral notes, like sweet peas in the sun. A perfumed fragrance lingers at the front of the nose, with honeycomb and peach pits becoming more prominent. Leave the dram to aerate and a damp wood spice develops.
Palate: Stewed orchard fruits come through first with peaches and plums at the front of the medley. Soft vanilla is joined by caramel and a darker, richer honey than that on the nose. Oak spice then enters and intertwines with a damp cigar leaf from the floor of a dunnage warehouse.
Finish: The sweetness slowly dissipates and is taken over by the damp spice. Light tannins leave the palate thirsty for more.
