Grand Old Parr is named for Thomas Parr, a semi-legendary Englishman reputed to have lived for 152 years, from the late 15th to the mid-17th Centuries.
The nose is mellow and rich with musty oak, plus a generous helping of malty cereal, with notes of dried grass and sea breeze, and a little candied dried fruit.
It’s rich and malty sweet on the palate, with some toffee and dried fruit flavoring, and a dash of spice.
The finish is a long, lingering one, slightly warm and slightly peppery.
Gold and slightly coppery in appearance.
