Official tasting notes:
Nose: Grain forward notes of baking rye bread with walnuts, woodworking shed, coconut and a hint of cocoa, followed by a big wave of honey, beeswax and orange cake.
Palate: Lots more honey, as well as a briny coastal note and canned peaches in syrup, a warm spice of almonds and oat biscuits bringing earthy balance. Very smooth.
Finish: More honey (we're sensing a pattern here!), orange peel and a big wave of vanilla cream, then a hint of lingering tropical fruits.
