Notes

On the nose, the sweetness of barley sugars and hazelnut chocolate was balanced by gentle smoke and chestnuts roasting on a charcoal brazier. The palate was chewy and substantial – wood-smoke and honey, heather moor-burn, slightly burnt fruit cake and suggestions of a coal-fire hearth. The reduced nose evoked brewers’ chocolate malt, raisins, cinder toffee, bourbon biscuits and coffee kisses. The palate now sweetened up quite a bit – brown sugar, chocolate donuts and over-done brownies in a smoky bothy atmosphere – eminently drinkable, we agreed. After 8 years in a bourbon hogshead this was moved into heavily charred new oak.
