Notes

The aromas possessed a vivacious exuberance that danced on clouds of orange oil and hot sand. Sticky treacle tart mixed with coffee dregs before leaping headfirst into an entire world of nut based delights as hazelnuts, walnuts, brazil nuts and roasted chestnuts cascaded around us like a squirrel's fantasy. The palate carried the dried spices of garam masala and turmeric with fresh ginger to give a pleasing yet bold tingle. Sweeter notes arose with orange chocolate cake and marmalade with more nuts; this time drizzled with maple syrup. The finish was an expression of pure indulgence as apple crumble with slightly singed edges meandered along a smooth path alongside sultanas and sweet tobacco. After spending 15 years in an ex-oloroso butt this was transferred to a new oak puncheon for the remainder of its maturation.
