American oak/ Sauternes finish
Dist: Sept 2008, moved to cask July 2017, Btl: Mar 2021
Tasted: May 2021
A dense, rich, grapey and honeyed nose. Pollen heavy floral notes mingle with barley, pepper and peach. Quite heavy on the finishing cask but the spirit is just about noticeable beneath. Late unsweetened pineapple, white liquorice and salty minerals.

The palate is also dense, sweet and floral with the recognisable Sauternes notes up first. Hints of barley, straw, beeswax and wood tannins come through on the middle, along with hints of vanilla, coconut and subtle spice. Long, lime conserve, melon, apricot, guava and pineapple finish. It's a little sugar coated but it's a damn fine fruity burst at the end.
