Sauternes cask – 46%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Pale straw
Nose: Gentle smoke, tinned pineapple, lemon zest, vanilla, hints of ginger and nutmeg.
Palate: Mild peat, honey, lemon zest, hints of banana, vanilla, hints of liquorice and ginger.
Finish: Long, mild and slighly spicy.
Overall: A remarkably gentle peated dram that does not slap your face but offers an intriguing mix of flavours.
Rating: 85/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
