Nose
Smooth pineapple and apple aromas plus a touch of polished leather.
Palate
Sweet but thankfully not cloying. Big, juicy pineapple flavours lead the way with traces of glacé cherry against a pleasant, bubbly texture. Tangy and mildly warming, too.
Finish
Dry, smooth and lip-tingling, filled with bittersweet pineapple.
Comment
Not the most complex of barley wines but deftly done.
