Light golden amber
Soft delicate citrus notes of orange and lemon, bound to a distinct sweetness of heather honey and a little agricultural note of the grain coming through. A second nosing brings notes of stone fruit and chocolate
Quite active on the palate at first taste, dark fruits are there as are the chocolate and citrus notes. The honey influence and some notes of pepper and wood spice build on the palate over time and there is a bit of warmth
The finish is dry, with the peppery notes and spices there, a little brine but not too much. A crisp clean finish on the aftertaste with no lingering heat or sweetness
