Its reputation goes before. Excellent colour with nice shading. Nuts in the scent. Malt on the tongue. A pleasing sweetness. And at a strength where one can have a second glass. Accolades deserved.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On cask this was an 8/10 -richly bready, sweet, nutty, smooth, nourishing. From a bottle it?s a 3/10 - thin, acrid, harsh like fruit skin. Milds and pasteurised bottling are not happy bedfellows.
