The nose was deeply decadent – de-glazing the Bourguignon pan with wine, Jaffa cakes, tutti-frutti ice-cream, toffee apples, polished wood and hints of pipe tobacco. The penetrating palate had drying hot-crossed buns, aniseed, clove rock, grape pips, grappa and roasted peach, plus slightly medicinal manuka honey sweetness. The reduced nose had mulled wine, rhubarb, iced caramels, pine and basketry – quite Christmassy. The still extremely tasty palate balanced perfectly the wine, wood and barley sweetness – Grand Marnier liqueur, blackcurrant jam, peach marmalade and chocolate with lemon pieces. After 20 years in ex-bourbon wood we finished this in an ex-red wine hogshead.
