LCBO Note Status Recommended by Vintage Assessments!
TASTING NOTE: Appearance: Clear, golden yellow. Aroma: Malty, biscuit nose with wafts of fresh coffee, apple skin, balsawood and subtle hints of tinned pineapple. More sweet biscuit and pineapple with water. Taste: Quite sweet, fruity and rounded with delicate wafts of smoke, strong bourbon notes, hints of espresso and oily mineral notes. Water dries, killing this malts attractive richness. Aftertaste: Refreshingly clean finish features minty, grapefruit and flinty, minerally notes. Overall: Rich and biscuity with bitter chocolate and espresso. Score - 4 Stars (out of 5) (diffordsguide.com, April 21, 2017) Price $ 259.95
