Sweet raisiny aroma, super mellow, richly malty. There’s nose booze, but there is a gentle heat in the mouth. Lovely rich malty barley wine, and the barrel ageing fits in perfectly. Finish has heavy resins, it just coats the tongue with a dusty dryness. Did enjoy finishing the glass, but was sad to see it over - nice one.

Next day. Sweet rum aroma, nice heavy malts too. Dark maple, no head. Full sweet palate, some strength, but no heat. Toffee and malts to the fore. Lovely sipper, sweet but not heavy. Finish has sweetness and a dry old bitter hopping. Very good one.

Sweet caramelly, dark bread and rhum nose.
The rhum is there, but in the back.
