After 26 years in ex-bourbon wood we transferred this into a first-fill oloroso barrique. The nose was like sniffing a butt – oak, leather tobacco pouches, orange peel, chocolate-dipped cherries, raisins and prunes. On our palates the oak and the fruit danced a mesmerizing zarabanda – ‘like sitting in a chesterfield with a cigar, eating chocolates out of a mahogany box’; also raspberry ripple, pomegranate molasses, lapsang tea, pickled ginger and chewy wood. The reduced nose – date slice, honey drizzled figs, pecan pie, coffee grounds, cigar smoke and ice-cream sundaes. The palate’s plum jam, fruit leathers, medjool dates, sherry and cigars suggested armchair satisfaction and contemplation.
