Notes

A dark and stormy nose slammed into the senses like barrels of navy rum colliding on the deck of HMS Bounty. Beef jerky and hot coals singed the olfactory whilst also barbequing oysters and orange skin. The palate however, altered our course towards calmer waters by taking on board pears poached in wine, fresh peppermint and rum and raisin ice-cream. A wonderful aroma wafted from the galley as lamb and pork belly roasted with a generous covering of rosemary and sage. Orange-infused chocolate opened the doors to the sticky indulgence of Pedro Ximinez sherry before a lapse in concentration grounded us on a bank of seashells and coral reef. After spending 25 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead this was transferred to a 1st fill Pedro Ximinez hogshead for the remainder of its maturation.
