Alcohol Level: 46%
Color: Medium-light golden brown with peachy glints
On the nose: Highly pleasant and appealing nose. Malt and grain are intertwined. Honey, peach cobbler, grilled pineapple, some meatier scents of roasted pork, and the faintly rich citric note of Meyer lemon. Some tannic wood hovers around the periphery, but never overwhelms the layers of aromas.
In the mouth: An initial taut, fruity intensity gives way to nutty cashew notes on the midpalate. There’s once again a lemony fruitiness that transitions into a lingering, slightly soapy finish. This has a bit of edge throughout the mouth as a consequence of the reasonably high bottling strength, in a way that makes up in places for the relative lack of depth. Again, there are woody notes around, but they don’t step to the fore in a way that distracts from the overall presentation.
