Notes

Found in the lonely hearts section... 'Mature and fun-loving dram with unquenchable personality needs uncorking by like-minded dessert for sticky weekends involving chocolate'. Who could resist an offer like that? This forthright little number certainly delivered as honeycomb and chocolate coated raisins partnered up with bakewell tarts and hot apple pie dusted with cinnamon. Stem ginger and marzipan casually flirted with coffee and walnut cake and popped a sly wink towards banana baked with dark chocolate. Honey-roasted cashews offered a nutty romance before evolving into baked sweet potato and washed down with a relaxing glass of cherry liqueur. For a first date it took some beating. After spending 28 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead this was transferred to a 1st fill oloroso hogshead for the remainder of its maturation.
