Tasting note: Bright amber / brass appearance. A little underwhelming in the initial pass with toasted marshmallow followed by hints of white pepper and a muted maltiness. Expands with further air contact as oatmeal biscuit and stone fruits are added to the mix. A concentrated and peppery delivery offers biscuity malt flavours over background fruitiness. Finishes with fruit chocolate and mildly tingly spirit that skews the balance slightly, followed by cocoa and attractive stewed pear notes lingering. Shows excellent freshness. 46% Alc./Vol.
