Notes

Finishing in a second-fill Sauternes hogshead has created a dram that's out of this world. The nose – elegant and sophisticated – hints at things you would miss while in space – flower markets, old-fashioned ice-cream parlours and perfumed ladies in vintage cars. The palate’s silky mango mouth-feel, with mandarin, raspberry tart and lemon cream is pure nectar – perfumed honey sweetness laced with angels’ tears – enough to inspire romantic, other-worldly thoughts. With water, the nose defies description the way some people defy gravity – as tempting as a perfumed apple in the Garden of Eden. The palate’s exquisite balance might be the most alluring thing this side of the stratosphere.
