The nose has pears, banana, caramel and a hint of peach. The mouthfeel is decent - smooth with a little cling. The body has fudge, marshmallow, pear, peach, and a hint of cinnamon. The finish is caramel and peach.
Water brings out thick, rapidly expanding whorling that settles into lingering mottling. The nose gains fruit salad chews. The body gains the same fruit salad and loses the cinnamon. The finish also gains fruit, but gains a little cinnamon.
A delightful dram - one for contemplating the future with friends. No decision is final until the bottle's empty!
