Notes

We found the nose sweet and fruity – pineapple humps, rhubarb rock, gooseberry and damson jams. The palate started sweet, smooth and easy, before turning sharp and fruity – flying saucers, ice-lolly sticks, sherbet straws and lemon Lockets; maybe some lime. Lime definitely appeared on the reduced nose – lime marmalade, lemon peel and an apple press in an orchard – refreshing and bright, even minty and floral. The reduced palate was an enjoyable experience of bitter-sweet tropical fruit cocktails, with long-lasting after-echoes of nippy humbugs and cinnamon fondant sweets. After seven years in ex-bourbon wood, this was finished in a second-fill white wine hogshead.
