Appearance: Pale, straw gold.
Nose: Lemon, apple, corn sugar, popcorn, oak, vanilla. Honey, bread.
Palate: Honey, oak, vanilla, raisins, spice, bunch of fruit, very boozy of course. The age comes through more more here than in the nose.
Finish: Honey, oak, old barrels, raisins, cinnamon, vanilla. Long lasting.
With Water: Absolutely necessary, of course. It all gets quite lovely after a good dose. Great lemon, bready, vanilla, fruit, oak.
Overall: Nose is nice but not fantastic. Gets much better in the mouth. Age comes through, with lots of beautiful fruits, spices, and tons of oak.
