Nose : Suet pudding – spotted dog. Some oils and banana milkshake.
Taste : Voluptuous delivery. A stunning meeting of juicy barley, soft fruits and delicate yet persistent spices; a light oiliness helps the more complex notes glide to all parts of the palate and some muscovado sugars make light of any oaky encroachment; the middle ground heads towards chocolate milkshake.
Finish : Long with the slowest build up of oaks on record. The spices continue to flit and fizz and finally vanilla takes hold.
