TASTING NOTE

circle_eye_small  Straw yellow.

 

circle_nose_small  Citrus fruits stand out with light  pineapple notes and bold buttery smoky notes from the oak ageing.

 

circle_mouth_small  An amazing combination of unashamedly bold buttery and toasted oak character alongside pineapple and citrus fruits. Yet the finish is light as a feather with crisp acidity and superb freshness.
