  • Nose opens with a fresh citrus burst. Almost like old fashioned hard boiled sweets. Floral hints poking through. Slightest hint of something herbal. Dry oak. Drop of water ramps of the sweetness of the citrus.
     
    The palate starts out much the same as the nose with the citrus burst but add some pear into the mix. Toasted almonds come out, as well as whipped cream. Gentle spice from the oak. Slight hint of malt. Drop of water brings out vanilla as well as the citrus.
     
    Finish is short-medium. Citrus and malt dominate and leaves behind a sweet yet slightly dry oak/vanilla note.
