Malty, oaky nose with notes of peat and orange marmalade. Youthful and muscular. The palate is malty and fairly sweet with honey and fresh notes of citrus and mint. Drying, develops oak. (The notes of honey and orange marmalade make me suspect refill sherry wood was used.) The finish is fruity at first, then oaky and peppery. Warming. All in all quite enjoyable.
