Nose: Rich caramel, waffles, rich fruitiness. Berries, apple, pear. Creme brulee.

Taste: Medium mouthfeel, no real heat. Fruity and loaded with vanilla. Passion fruit, pear, apple and faint raspberry. Nice clove presence with healthy caramel character. Really sweet and fruity.

Finish: Long, rich and loaded with honey. Fruity character continues and balances nicely with some clove and rich vanilla.

Overall: I really enjoyed this – probably one of the better wheated releases I have had outside of WLW.
