Bua's Five Barrel Maturation
On the nose, Bua gives off some gentle vanilla and orange notes, accompanied by some pine and floral. If left to open in the glass, after a few short minutes all the aromas of a fruit bowl come out…sweet grapes, green apple, pear and more.
On the palate, Bua comes to the table with lasting caramel, some gentle spice and vanilla. There are also sweet dried fruit notes there for those who look and a dark sugar and crème brûlée finish from that freshly charred barrel maturation.
In appearance Bua shows a vibrant light amber, closely coating the glass, hinting at Bua’s rounded body and impressive mouthfeel.
