Tasting notes
Nose: This is fruity and floral. A big bucket of pears and green apples with honey, butterscotch and a speck of dust. Quite vibrant and youthful.

Mouth: Surprisingly dusty with the malt coming forward with the fruits switching over to ripe red apples and apple juice. The oak is there, but not overpowering. Very mild and welcoming.

Finish: Still dusty and the ripe fruits soon get overtaken by the oak notes. Hazelnuts, peaches and a feint coffee note complement the oak finish.
