Notes

The fruity nose (peaches, strawberries, orange syrup, Jolly Ranchers, wine gums) also had Battenberg and Turkish Delight sweetness and tiny traces of star anise. The palate was spicier and woodier – spiced fruits, clove and sauna wood, but also had honey, marzipan and boiled sweets – mouth-drawing, but full interesting. The reduced nose became more inviting – pineapple, coconut and travel sweets, apple and pear orchards and hints of mulled wine and Fisherman’s Friends. The palate now had dry pencil shavings, cigar leaf and peppercorns balancing three-fruit marmalade juiciness. After 15 years in ex-bourbon wood we transferred this to a first-fill Spanish oak Oloroso hogshead.
