Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonStingy maltiness and a bit ripe fruity vanilla. With water, some smoke? And with more time it suddenly turns very crispy with clean pears. Weird. Tastewise a rather massive cereal wall appears. Tones down a little with water but still a bit too much on the malt for my tastes.
Rich Howardon the nose, and odd combination of crisp, light fruit, some vanilla and malty bread. the palate is much the same, with light apple tart, heavy on the bread, add a dash of powdered sugar. the finish is dry and very short, with some slightly sour herbal notes. [tasted blind for the 2010 awards.]
