On the nose, there’s a hint of menthol initially. It’s got a whack of malt biscuits. Very very gentle on the spice though. The palate though is spicy, and at the start there’s a punch of flavour that then wanes a little. It’s smooth with some spice and it’s sweet.
Some warmth on the finish with coffee bitterness and oak.
