Description

Stewed fruits greeted us with the warm embrace of ginger marmalade and an aged quality reminiscent of old Armagnac. Nutty reverberations brought elements of fine oloroso sherry that deepened with time into figs, dates and orange skin. The warm spice of nutmeg and mace encouraged us to delve into the taste that soon became a smorgasbord of nutty character. Toasted oats, pine nuts, cobnuts and chestnuts all jostled for position. Herbal hues peered through the husks as we found snippets of tart fruit and yoghurt. The finish displayed a strong sense of coconut, neatly packaged in a crate of new oak.
