Nose: a bright profile, with green bananas and white plums, waxy lemons and cake. Chamomile. Sweet bready notes (dough) and barley. Light grassy touches and vanilla custard. A blossomy edge too. Classic white oak, I’d say. Mouth: same freshness. Plenty of barley notes again, mirabelles, sweet lemon and apples. A hint of limoncello perhaps. Hints of fragrant oak with green spices. Less special than the nose. Finish: medium, on pepper
All very clean and bright, with nice orchard fruits and a fragrant oaky side that suits it. Perhaps a re-charred cask? Hard to fault but the price is a little on the high side for the complexity it has on offer. Around € 170.
