Notes

It opens with burning marmalade, a kick of sea air and ozone and some heady floral notes before diving into sweet gravy, leather satchel and pink flying saucers. Notes of crusted port, lemon jelly, ovaltine and milk chocolate all emerge. With water there is honeycomb, red currants, tea tree oil and coal dust. The palate shows dense dark fruit, a puff of glazed smoke, a dusty old book, some warm leather, clay, smashed terracotta plant pots and an autumnal earthiness. A little reduction brings honey, barley sugar, warm tea leaves and malt extract with a sense of balanced spice in the finish. Previously in a bourbon hogshead for 15 years.
