Notes

The nose evoked country house interiors – polished mahogany and chesterfields, cherry blossom and baskets of dried flowers, Anton Bergs and tiffin on the table with venison stew aromas coming from the kitchen. The palate was a mouth-drawing (but pleasant) experience – leather, pink peppercorns, red delicious, nicotine tar, black tea, dark chocolate, damson jam and green Chartreuse. The reduced nose (sweeter and softer) offered armagnac-soaked sultanas, dried figs, Vieille Prune, dragon fruit and zinfandel rosé. The palate now included limoncello, dried pineapple, salted chilli chocolate, angostura bitters and gooseberry tart. After 15 years in bourbon wood we shifted this into a second-fill French oak hogshead.
