The nose is initially a little shy and cereally but it doesn't take long for the profusion of oak aromas to emerge. First up the creamy American oak vanilla followed by sweet red fruits, wheat/ bran flakes, treacle, dried grape, raisin and finally some subtle, spicy French oak. As you can expect there is no spirit character.

Watch my review on Episode 370 of The Good Dram Show

The nose opens with the dry wood tannins, but the sweet, creamy vanillins balance. Spicy red fruit, treacle, Oloroso dried fruit, herbal wheat flakes, fig, raisin, walnut and tar follow. Very soft and full with a long redcurrant jelly finish and a little French oak spice.
