Sweet and easy, simple but yummy.  Too much heat in the finish.

My favorite in this series.  The sweetness is sugary, not winey like the others.  I really like what they did with this.  I do recommend this.

Nose:  sweet honey and liqueur notes with a malty background.
Palate:  Very sweet and syrupy with a good malty back note that develop into a malty finish.

Nice and drinkable, if a bit too sweet for my tastes.

I thought it had lots of very sweet white wine notes on the nose.  Peaches and nectarines with tea on the palate and a light honey sweet finish.  Nothing offensive about this malt but I struggled to finish the bottle.

n: golden plump raisins, doughy cinnamon rolls with thick white frosting. Sundried linens in summer. Vanilla and orange candle wax.

 

t: the vanilla and orange frosting sweetness is the main flavour. A lot of golden grape juice, the cask finish has a lot of influence here. This is quite sweet and doesn't have much complexity but it is quite tasty and nice. Quite hot in the finish.

 

My second favourite in the series. Thomas Jefferson was an avid connoisseur of Sauternes wine.

n:  Faint.  Honeysuckle and tin

 

p: Generic sweetness over new wood.  Hotter than expected.  Easy drinking though.
