Notes

The complex, intriguing nose had crème brûlée, walnut fudge and spotted dick; Charentais melon, ripe apples and a cherished old leather briefcase. Satisfying warmth flooded the mouth – rum and raisin fudge, coconut, fruit scones, Calvados and sugar-top buns with hints of wood, leather and tobacco. The reduced nose found stewed apples and passion-fruit, oaty flapjacks, butter tablet, fresh-baked cakes and oaked white wine. The palate was now syrupy and viscous – apple caramel granny cake with hints of Marsala –perfect for curling up in an armchair with a blanket. After 13 years in ex-bourbon wood we transferred this to a Sauternes barrique.
