Notes

The nose was bursting with sweet, fruity vanilla notes – honeyed pear, peach, melon and strawberry ice-cream; pineapple cakes, apricot jam and Anton Berg chocolates (marzipan and plum); we also detected cigarette packets and polished wood. The palate had abundant fruit and hot spice – tart fruit skins, stewed plums, honey, oak, tobacco and ginger. The reduced nose found oiled wood, cinnamon, tobacco leaf and puff candy sweetness. The palate was now extremely approachable – gentle warming spices (liquorice, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon) combined with pleasing toffee and brown sugar sweetness. After fourteen years in ex-bourbon cask this was re-racked into a second-fill Sauternes hogshead.
