2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask @ JDW, Victoria Station. The pour’s deep gold with a small white head. The nose is musty concord grape, some honey and dried wood. Sweet cereal. The taste is plenty o’ white toast, watered-down honey syrup. Light harvest fruits, a bit of grain. Not much flavor really. Light, waifish body. Overall, boring. One to scroll past.
