One to be sipped and enjoyed over these winter months.
Net weight: 1.6kg
Nose: Soft and delicate on the nose, an initial malty, cereal element opens up to sweet apricot notes. With hints of lemon meringue pie and orange peel, a soft citrus characteristic develops over time.
Palate: Following the delicate nose, this malt is clearly more powerful on the palate. Sweet and sticky with a waxy mouthfeel and a hint of aniseed. Lemon, pear drops and honey notes are present alongside rich milk chocolate and liquorice.
Finish: Rounded off with a gentle peat smoke influence, and the endurance of the malty, cereal notes.
