Notes

Pure ancient balsamic, sultana puree, sweet black coffee, chai tea, star anise, five-spice, aged plum wine, pine resin, damp hessian in a dunnage warehouse, sweet back cherries, caramelised muscovado sugar and aged sauternes. Superb notes of rancio increase with time. Water brings out subtle notes of onion seed, lemongrass and coriander leaf. Then foie gras on rye bread, orange oils, cocktail bitters, passion fruit syrup and aged Navy rum. The palate is superbly slick and rich. Natural tar extracts, bitter espresso, molten dark chocolate, cherry cola, cranberry jus, walnut wine, aged pu-erh tea, cannabis resin, Bovril eau de vie and pre-phylloxera Marmite. With water there's pastis, liquorice sauce, herbal extracts, rosewater, sweet Gewurztraminer, melon syrup and pomegranate molasses. This was matured for 15 years in an oloroso sherry butt then transferred into a second-fill ex-oloroso Spanish oak sherry butt to add an extra layer of velvety complexity.
