Nose is really oaky, green, leafy. Like branches freshly stripped from a tree (maple?). Vague fruits in the background.
Palate... hmm. I don't know, it's not doing it for me. Mildly sweet, a tinge of fruits/melons, and oily aspects. Finish is a little too woody and bitter. I love the K&L guys, but for me this is overall too flat and over-oaked.
N: Sweet initially with some malty notes and a touch of honey; white pepper all over, a little wood.
P: Nice mouthfeel, leads with a fair dose of wood. Some old-style flintiness to this one, mineral. A little sweet - a faint hint of dried orange and apple. Big and bold. Leans a touch bitter with time.
F: Warm with white pepper, again a slight hint of minerality.
Quite big and bold. Really enjoyable. The mineral notes remind me of older (distillation date, not age) malts.
