Description

The nose combined sweetness (barley sugars, nut brittle, orange coconut ice and Demerara) with woody spice – coltsfoot rock, spiced rum and clove-studded oranges. The palate was mouth-watering and refreshing, with sugar-cane, honey, sherbet and an almost Christmas spiciness of pine resin, cinnamon ‘lucky tatties’, syrup of figs and rum. The reduced nose drifted into the Sangria, Pimms and fruit punch department – but remained sweet and perfumed (pineapple, strawberries, Pavlova). The palate delivered raspberry and blackcurrant, dark chocolate and sugary espresso dregs – sweet medicine for the soul. After 10 years in a first-fill barrel we moved this into a virgin oak hogshead.

DRINKING TIP: Sweet medicine for the soul.
