Distribution of ratings for this:
Colour – deep golden amber. Long legs, it sticks to the glass.
Nose: vanilla, oak, cut grass, floral, sweet caramel and crisp apples.
Palate: smooth and soft in the mouth. Dry spiced oak, barley, sweet caramel, dried fruits, lightly spiced fading to a drying pepper.
The finish is fairly long, sweet and lightly peppered.
A drop of water really opens up the nose nicely and I would recommend it. I really didn't like the NAS or 3wood, the 12 is very good but this is a completely different level.
