Notes

This one needed a bit of time and it felt like we had to pull the curtains to reveal its soul. Initially slightly metallic with a burnt thyme note but, be patient, and you will be rewarded; perfumed lavender candle as well as Cape gooseberry blueberry jam on warm croissants. On the palate toasted oak clusters, juicy raisins, pineapple junks, grapes and pecan nuts made this a real crowd-pleaser. With water a luscious fragrant fruity dessert wine on the nose and to taste a panna cotta with roasted rhubarb. After fourteen years in an ex-bourbon hogshead we transferred this whisky into a 2nd fill Sauternes barrique.
