Nose: A lovely sweet maltiness: barley sugar, honeysuckle, grassy meadows, with some polished oak and suggestions of summer fruit in the background. A delicious whiff of summer.
Palate: Carries on from the nose with a gorgeous honeyed malt character, berry fruit compote, red apple, runny (natural) caramel and faint leafy grassiness. Delightful. Water lifts the fruit and exposes a pepperiness.
Finish: Glorious runny honey and rich oak with a touch of peppery spice.
Comment: Just so moreish. I loved Br2, but this might be even better. A fully mature dram at the peak of its powers.
