Description

From the outset we were entwined in a sticky concoction of dried orange skin, treacle and cherries. Spiced cake mix delivered cinnamon, nutmeg and mace with runny honey, chocolate fudge and tinned fruit cocktail. The viscous texture of linseed oil guided us towards rye whiskey with caramelised parsnips and burnt toffee closely followed by the sweet fragrance of fuchsia. The palate continued as it began with chewy and rich fruit intermingling with chilli and ginger. Dates, prunes and figs introduced madeira cake and milk chocolate whilst the finish stood firmly in charred wood. After spending 20 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead this was transferred into a 1st fill oloroso hogshead for the remainder of its maturation.
