The nose presented an interesting duality – vanilla fudge, caramel, macaroon bars and boozy fruit trifle – partnered by cove-studded oranges and Christmas wreaths. The palate also had sweetness – damson jam, Black Forest gateau, dried fruits and Ruffle bars (coconut, raspberry and dark chocolate) – balanced by toasted rye bread and aromatic wood spices. The reduced nose combined maple syrup, waffles and pain au chocolat with sandalwood oil, cinnamon, ginger and pepper. The palate had plum pie, Eccles cakes, mango chutney and rum and raisin ice-cream – well-behaved and very enjoyable. After 20 years in ex-bourbon wood we moved this into a first-fill port barrique.
