Tasting Notes

Nose

Wine influence jumps right up front with a raisiny sweetness followed by notes of young malt, vanilla, toffee, pear heavy fruit and a light earthy bit of sawdust and a light floral note.

Palate

Like with the nose the raisiny winy sweetness jumps out first followed by a sweet graininess, apricots, vanilla, fruit, young malt and again that light earthy bit of sawdust.

Finish

Medium finish of malt, raisiny sweetness and a punch of port. I know it was finished in madeira casks, but it reminds me more of ports I’ve had than madeira.
