laiti (6733) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Draught @ CBC14
Vintage 2013, 16%
Aroma is stale and a total vanilla overdose. Very sweet and syrupy. Flavour has strong bourbon tones, sweet malt and caramel. Despite all the sweetness and strong aromas, this feels balanced. A slow sipper for a long evening.
