Notes

The nose wafts a bouquet of fruit tea, Percy Pigs, thick-cut marmalade and marrons glacés, with rum-soaked prunes, Armagnac and hints of leather and waxed jackets. The palate is a sumptuous feast of juicy figs, spiced plums and chocolate sauce over raspberries; we also found lebkuchen and peppery black bun. Adding water (completely unnecessary) produced aromas of toffee apple, marzipan, plum tart and pumpernickel. The palate is a rapturous balance of fruit (raspberry, cassis) and earthier flavours of dark chocolate, root beer and parsnip and beetroot crisps. After 15 years in an Oloroso butt we transferred this to a new oak puncheon.
