Member Ratings and Notes

The nose is malty with orange rind, brandy notes and lots of fruit. The palate is fairly straightforward and malty with a touch of honey and a bit of acid; the acid grows toward the end getting a bit astringent.  The finish has red wine notes and some sherry type nots on the nose but the astringency stays with you.

 

I'm not a huge fan of this malt.  The nose is very nice but the palate is overly astringent and the wine notes aren't ingtegrated well into the malt.
