Tasting Notes

Deliciously sweet aromas encapsulated sugared almonds, marshmallows and red liquorice before fruity notes of dried apricots, ripe apples and sultanas joined pencil shavings and beeswax polish. The palate was a big and chewy affair as figs, dates and toffee collided with pipe tobacco mixed with marmalade dusted with cinnamon, cocoa and a splash of oloroso. Water brought out oxidised sherry notes of hazelnuts and walnuts with creme caramel and the oily character of cured ham. The palate was now much creamier, as milk chocolate and treacle-coated raisins, watermelon and burnt marshmallows combined. After 13 years in a bourbon hogshead, this was transferred to a first fill Spanish oak oloroso hogshead.
