Whew thats a mouth full. This is an independent bottling via Douglas Laings "Old Particular" line for K&L Wines in California. It is bottled as cask strength and is NCA | NCF.
Yeasty, bread-y. Dole fruit syrup. Faint salinity. Sweet butter cream. Mildly lactic, milkiness.
Medium mouth feel, honey, yeasty dough, pepper. Faint smoke. Mild heat, vanilla cream, more Dole fruit syrup (think fruit cocktail).
Long, peppery, lots of sweet cream. Astringency grows, rubbery essence. Faintly bitter.
This was really great, but began to fall apart in the finish. It was a little harsh. That said, still enjoyable, for the most part.
