Hogshead – 55.3%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Medium amber
Nose: Some oaky dustiness covers banana and apple, vanilla, honey, candied ginger and pepper.
Palate: Honey, stewed apples, hints of banana, vanilla, green tea, hints of mixed dried herbs and pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and spicy.
Overall: Quite an enjoyable dram that shows its age with a certain driness. Altogether it is nothing really special, though.
Rating: 85/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
