The nose had charred oak and pencil shaving woodiness, but mainly toffee, waffles, pecan pie, fresh donuts and syrup sponge. The palate (evoking Cognac and Kentucky) had big banana toffee, figs, raisins, dates and peaches in syrup; curry and Peshwari naan to finish. The reduced nose continued with sweet treats – rum and raisin fudge, toffee sauce on ice-cream, Russian caramels and yum-yums – all balanced by an American Christmas spice mix. The palate combined Crunchie bars, honey, dark chocolate, treacle and figs with cinnamon, nutmeg and charred wood. After 28 years in ex-bourbon wood we transferred this to a virgin oak hogshead.

DRINKING TIP: To evoke Christmas – in a nice way – or for a join the dots imaginary journey.
