Notes

Hazelnuts and brazil nuts arrived neatly arranged on a sandalwood platter beside slices of warm banana bread and cherry pie. Then the sweet scents of dried carnations mingled with fresh apples drizzled with caramel sauce as chilli heat awakened the palate. With water we discovered the soft fruitiness of guava and passionfruit whilst battenberg cake brought with it marzipan and vanilla. Bags of nutmeg and cloves now fused with strong woody notes that suggested old mahogany and cigar boxes. A wedge of Jamaican ginger cake arrived on the finish where it was joined by banana skins and spiced orange. After spending 12 years in an ex-bourbon barrel this was transferred to a 2nd fill barrel for the remainder of its maturation.
