from a purchased sample
Nose: Waxy apricots, peaches, and flower petals. Rather light and luscious honey with some orange rind, anise/menthol, vanilla steeped in it. A few estery off-sweet notes that draw in some more of the wood. Just a little sweet. It's generally pleasant, though on the whole rather linear, while giving a vibe of just a pinch of sugar. Youngish, but not too young.
Palate: Honey, orange pith/zest, flowers, and some granular sugar. There's obviously been some water added, but it's not painful. Zesty bitterness keeps it in line, even if it's on wet oak barrel and a little loud at times.
Finish: Bitter, waxy, and elements of the fruit, but it's rather limpid now. Just another fairly standard offering with fairly standard characteristics with decent composition, but without any pizzazz or verve. C
