Notes

Aromas intrigued the senses with the complexity of aged Riesling wine bound by delightful oils that suggested linseed and brazil nuts. Fruit-driven fancies incorporated baked apple tart and cherry liqueur with multiple scoops of rum and raisin ice cream with a praline sauce. The opulence expanded further into coffee and cocoa powder served alongside almonds and hazelnuts. Tantalising spices introduced nutmeg on roasted orange skin whilst banana skin merged with fermenting apples on an orchard floor. With water, an interesting duality positioned us between the dry depth of oloroso sherry and the raisined sweetness of Moscatel wine, touching on dates before rounding out with bitter chocolate. After spending 26 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead this was transferred to a 1st fill Pedro Ximinez hogshead for the remainder of its maturation.
