Tasting note: Clear, brilliant gold. Fruity, almost floral nose. Second pass hints at lucerne mulch and new leather. 3-4 minutes in the glass reveals ripe orchard fruits. Semi sweet with a delicious, buttery-malt / spicy pear mid palate; more pepper and oak input to finish. Terrific depth. Late fruitiness with the peppery quality lingering. Undeniably a stand out sub $100 malt. 46% Alc./Vol.
