Notes

The nose was beautifully decadent. Swirls of dark chocolate engulfed candied ginger and orange peel. We enjoyed crunchy gingerbread biscuits with a glass of intense sherry. There was a joyful, youthful vibrancy to the dram. The full on flavour revealed a cupboard of dried spices (cinnamon, coriander) and a treacle sweetness. This was big, young and complex. A splosh of water brought polished leather shoes to the fore, there were honeyed raisins imbedded in a tray of flapjacks. The taste, now more rounded, still tattooed the tongue with spicy ginger, maple syrup and clean sherry. Young whisky at its best. After 8 years in an Oloroso butt, we transferred this whisky to a 1st fill Pedro Ximenez butt.
