Bottles in collection: 0
Emptied bottles: 0
Nose: Very fruity and fresh. Green apples and pears take front seat and a hint of darker fruits make a baseline from behind. It’s not very sweet but gives honey and vanilla notes in between the fruits. The oak is present from the start. It’s a very dry wood feel to it. It’s very pleasant and easy to approach.
Mouth: Malty and a little dusty. The fruits takes a step back and it gets sweeter with more of the honey and vanilla up front. The oak is bitter and resides in the back. There’s not much of a spicyness. A little disappointing after that fantastic nose.
Finish: A whiff of the fruitiness and a hint of honey and vanilla, but it sort of just dies very quickly and leaves nothing but dry oak, walnuts and a hint of coffee. Very oak heavy bitter finish.
This expression from Singleton is aged in a combination of european ex-sherry casks and american ex-bourbon barrels.
