Nose: Creme Bruleee and malt gives way to vibrant notes of grapefruit peel.
Palate: The vibrant citrus carries through from the nose and it accompanied by more orchard fruits, melon and a subtle hint of black pepper spice.
Finish: More pronounced dried fruits & hints of wood tannins on the finish. A certain citrus freshness remains.
