Appearance: A rich honey amber with reddish hues in the deeper recesses of the glass. Medium legs.
Nose: Malty, with sweet cream, vanilla, notes of candied almonds, lightly medicinal. Very subtle nose.
Palate: Sweet and easy to drink. Creamy and dry. Delicate. Notes of sweet cream, warm cinnamon rolls, grapefruit zest (which I normally despise, but find pleasant in this context). Smoke arrives quite late. The finish is soft, slow, and lightly smoky, with lingering malt notes and a hint of pipe tobacco.
