Description

The aroma was that of baking small traditional French almond cakes called 'financier' with the main ingredients being ground almonds and beurre noisette. On the palate neat we imagined sitting in a rustic farmhouse kitchen enjoying clotted cream and lemon curd mousse with cardamom shortbread. When adding a little water we got served a toasted vanilla bean raspberry cake with coconut as well as an almond butter, plum and granola sandwich with a little drizzle of honey. After fourteen years in an ex-bourbon hogshead we transferred this whisky into a first-fill Moscatel hogshead for the remainder of its maturation.
