Earthy notes appear first (polished wood, Victory V’s, leather and tobacco) but given time some fruit arrives (ruby port, Chambord, orange oil). The palate also has leather, tobacco and wood; ginger biscuits, Pontefract cakes and Mon Cheri chocolates; dry Amarone drifts slowly towards Fernet Branca. The reduced nose displays root beer, Madeira, Manuka and macerated plums with hints of clove. To taste now – figs, dates, leather and dried flowers – but also dry cocoa powder, chocolate stout and dark chocolate with pieces of cherry or ginger. After 16 years in ex-bourbon wood we transferred this into a first-fill charred red wine barrique.
