It’s like cola on the nose, minus the fizz but plus lightly burnt cake, barley sugar and the insinuation of an old wood fruit box – altogether mellifluously syrupy.
Mouthcoatingly rich, sweet, and intriguingly spiced on the palate it shows some of the wood’s American Bourbon history, honeycomb and cereal, which all come through similarly on its sherbet style finish. (FHL)
