Notes

The nose had mainly cereal and chocolate notes – chocolate malt and granola with dark chocolate nibs – also raisin fudge, chocolate gingers and tea chests. The palate had winey touches (Campari, Fernet Branca) but it was mainly spicy – liquorice root, nutmeg, anise, ginger snaps; Moffat toffees, dried dates and leather. The reduced nose – burnt raisins in cake, dried apricot, Branston pickle and marigolds. The palate now had toffee apple and treacle tart with the warmth of gingerbread and chilli roasted peanuts; leather and tobacco to finish. After 12 years in ex-bourbon wood we transferred this to a charred red wine first-fill barrique.
