Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Finish Chocolate somehow enters the well-balanced flavour party here with the returning white grape, there is a sensation of a barnyard along with a fresh bread finish. In the end there is a real warming in the chest that is most comforting, a heat that somehow escaped the palate thanks again to the oily goodness of the oats.
Tasting Notes from the Producer
Aromas (without water) The first sensation is of a huge sweetness which is later established as a bag of liquorice all-sorts. It is quite floral, like honeysuckle while bridging these notes is treacle, wheaten bread (or brow bread as they call it in the south) with a hint of pulled pork or other salty meat.
Flavour Again, liquorice all-sorts are in abundance. Custard cream biscuits in a bowl of custard on one hand with white desert wine and white grapes on the other. All this sits on a very lathery texture thanks to the oat’s oily goodness.
