Perfumed notes of lavender and violets blended with barley water and demerara sugar before nutmeg and Jamaica cake suggested heavier intentions to come. The solid wood of a polished mahogany door then swung open to allow a cascade of spiced rum and herbs to flow forth. Cinnamon, cloves and fresh ginger delivered a solid thump followed closely by an avalanche of burnt raisins, sweet tobacco and sugar coated fennel seeds. Water produced a cloud of spicy incense smoke that wafted over Turkish delight and polished cowboy boots. Black pepper and pink peppercorns tingled into dried papaya and rich fruitcake before vanilla ice cream and caramel wafers rounded out the finish. After spending 19 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead this was transferred to a 1st fill pedro ximenez hogshead for the remainder of its maturation.
