Description

Subtle but complex aromas of roasted spiced butternut squash, honey-glazed parsnips, treacle tart, pecan pie and warm mulled cider. On the palate at first hot like a cinnamon gobstopper, followed by a spoonful of honey malt extract before cinnamon toast and a hot toddy arrived. Water released honey-spiced oranges as well a raspberry liqueur and on the palate now a complete transformation with freshly squeezed apple juice and a blackberry-rhubarb crumble with custard. After 20 years in an ex-bourbon refill hogshead, we transferred this whisky directly into a 1st fill American oak Pedro Ximenez hogshead for the remainder of its maturation.
