Notes

This felt like sunshine in a glass; picnic in a golden rapeseed field with effervescent honeydew granite spritzers, Calvados Sidecar cocktails and caramelized pineapples chunks. On the palate like setting of a firework of flavours; chilli jams, Sichuan peppercorns, pipe tobacco, acacia honey and fresh coconut pieces. Water added a rich aroma of praline bread and butter pudding with caramel-pecan sauce and on the taste we were ‘Flirting with the Sandpiper’ – cherry brandy, light rum, orange bitters and orange juice. After 25 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky directly into a refill Sauternes cask for the remainder of its maturation.
