Notes

Toasty cereal notes began to swarm around lavender and rose water as beeswax and honeycomb-coated Brazil nuts, toasted pine nuts and almonds. Then a sweet spice emerged from the oven as cinnamon and nutmeg mixed with marzipan on sponge cake and toasted fruit cake. A palate bound by rich spice and ginger spread over banana skins and liquorice before hard toffee merged with roasted chestnuts and espresso coffee. Water brought waxy textures on soft leather and antique wood as runny honey oozed over toasty cereals, ginger cake and rum and raisin ice cream. Now dark chocolate notes appeared among cigar boxes and a dusting of cocoa powder on buttered bread. After spending 11 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead this was transferred to a first fill sauternes barrique for the remainder of its maturation.
