We found this a complex dram; the nose had an appealing buttery aspect (milk chocolate, banana chips, Belgian waffles, cinnamon Danish and profiteroles); a fruity stratum of peach stones, strawberry lollies, kiwi and grapes and a deeper, richer layer of dried red fruits, sherry, walnuts, tobacco, vanilla, leather and spice. The palate was bursting with tropical fruits – blackcurrant juice, mango, banana, pineapple, blueberry muffins and Lilt; but it also delivered sweetness (gummi bears, white chocolate, syrup) and again – that depth, of liquorice, black tea and gingerbread. After 12 years in ex-bourbon wood we transferred this to a virgin oak hogshead.
