This is a NAS malt finished in Tawny port, Ruby port, and Vintage port casks and bottled at 43% ABV.
Nose: Malt with a slightly smoky side – sweet port adding fig and plum notes with a dollop of honey.
Palate: Quite peppery and spicy up front with red grapes, very young oak and honey.
Finish: Oak is dominant with minerals and bitter fruits.
Value for the money: I paid around $75 which isn’t terrible, but I’d like to see this closer to $50.
