Not much aroma initially; following aeration time succulent notes of sweet grain, sweet oak, marzipan and nuts appear. Entry is firm, focused and moderately sweet and grainy; midpalate is intensely honeyed, featuring plump tastes of marshmallow, dark caramel, fudge, cake frosting and wood. Finishes sweet and full-bodied. Very good and straightforward.

Pale amber color. Attractive aromas of buttered warm chocolate malt cereal, honeyed fruits, and delicate blossoms with a silky, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a long, elegant and creamy finish with tingling spices lingering. Really delicious and satisfying.
