Description

The aromas danced around the room in delicate steps of orange blossom, rose petals and mandarin before turning to a more autumnal twirl of dried fruits, banana bread and candied ginger. The palate followed with a warming and chewy spice that seemed to envelop the entire body in a comforting blanket of deliciousness. Sweet and creamy custard appeared with sticky homemade blackcurrant jam, fresh brambles, dried prunes and over-ripe pineapple served on a new oak platter. After spending 13 years in an ex-Bourbon hogshead it spent the remainder of its maturation in a Virgin oak hogshead.

DRINKING TIP: To accompany the passo doble.
