A dram with high curiosity value: the nose combines syrupy sweetness, crystallised fruits, marrons glacés and Grand Marnier with herbal notes (sorrel, lemon balm), forest floors, dried seaweed and oily peat bogs. The palate discovers slivovitz, prune yoghurt, chocolate-coated raisins and a visceral after-taste of tobacco leaf, mushrooms and teriyaki. The reduced nose balances spun sugar, spotted dick and ‘flies' cemeteries’ with old sea chests, pipe smoke and hunting jackets. The palate incorporates damson jam, seaweed and tobacco tang and tasting burnt naan bread in the wine vaults. After 27 years in ex-bourbon wood we introduced this to a first-fill sauternes barrique.
