My tasting notes:
- Appearance: Light gold (6/20), slow-forming, medium-fine tears and strong, medium legs.
- Nose: Sweet, highland toffee, milk chocolate, fruity peach and apricot, sweet honey and golden syrup, some apple and pear notes, a touch of floral blossom, vanilla, and oak wood.
- Taste: Succulent sweet and fleshy stone fruits, peach and apricot, backed by pear and apple, drizlled in honey, nutty with a nut brittle nature, toffee, fudge, oak wood, spiced nutmeg, buttery and mouth-coating, medium-full bodied and very smooth.
- Finish: Long, ripe apricots and nectarine flesh, sweet honey, nut and some spiced black pepper.
Superbly smooth and very sweet and fleshy/juicy stone fruits abound, like biting into ripe peach, apricot and Nashi pears. Wonderful.
