Notes

This dram entered the ring with a confident and bold swagger, dressed in a gown of orange skins and chocolate truffles. Heavy punches smacked of Demerara sugar, butterscotch and vanilla coffee whilst from the corner came spirited cheers from pinot noir, spiced rum and Tokaji dessert wine. The smell of new leather boxing gloves danced around the ring with salted caramel wafers, dark fruits and juniper berries before a final blow from herbs and wood char ended the round. After a splash of water, we bounced into round two as orange marmalade and madeira cake traded punches with singed marshmallows and roasted vegetables. Finally, Thai basil found itself up against the ropes before a hard hit from Lapsang Souchong tea and liquorice sweets ended the bout. After spending ten years in an ex-bourbon hogshead this was transferred to a first-fill ex-Sauternes barrique for the remainder of its maturation.
