American oak/ Rivesaltes finish
Dist: Sept 2008, moved to cask July 2017, Btl: Mar 2021

An earthy, dried grass, straw and funky herbal nose. Hints of apricot, white fruit, white liquorice and tight wood notes. Given time it opens out to show a slightly floral side with hyacinth, and honeysuckle. Finally barley and charred oak notes appears.

The palate opens with some fresher white fruit and late harvested winey honey. Again the floral hyacinth, and honeysuckle are noticeable, along with straw, earth, wood shaving and a distinct minerality. Lovely balance of sweet fruit, spirit and slightly bitter spices. Long, juicy, sugar coated white fruit finish with late lime jelly, vanilla and apricot.
