The nose held our attention with attractive, wood-derived notes of dunnage, vanilla and tobacco leaf; also sweet, perfumed aromas of jam donuts, brandy snaps, dolly mixtures, banana and tulips. The palate balanced sweetness with acidity – unripe nectarine, pomegranate, black cherries and lime; Haribo Astro Belts, hyacinths and subtle wine hints. The reduced nose had fresh-sawn oak, chamois leather, coconut and laurel leaf counterpointing fudge, marshmallow and Turkish delight. On the palate, we found Amarena cherries and limoncello – still tangy and lip-smacking but much sweeter. After 16 years in ex-bourbon wood we transferred this into a first-fill red wine hogshead.
