Crisp and fresh, fruity and herbal. Superbly balanced, full-bodied and enticing. Without water: crisp, apetizing. So mouth-coating, with an oily feel immediately followed by a fizzy sensation on the tongue. Lavishly challenging for the taste buds but alcohol is perfectly tamed and never burning. Custardy. Poached peaches in a vanilla syrup. White chocolate. Aniseed lollipop. Candied ginger. The finish is dry, clean, crisp. Very long. Aniseed. Refreshing. Bitter oranges. Gingery.
The first nosing passes detect notes of charred meat, vanilla bean and pipe tobacco; aeration time stimulates more grainy/floral scents. The palate entry is sweet, oaky and slightly spicy; the midpalate finds delightful flavors of malt, sweet oak, honey, nutmeg and toffee. Concludes warm, but not searing. Sweet and succulent.
