The nose was attractively sweet – pancakes with maple syrup, butterscotch, caramel, stewed pears, Calvados, orange zest and walnuts – all signifying really good wood influence. The palate had intense sweetness (figs, dates, raisins, sherry-soaked trifle), some wood character, burnt toffee and glazed walnuts. The reduced nose evoked sherry and port, wine gums and jelly babies, all served on board a clipper – tropical breezes filling the sails. The palate was now clean, dry and nutty – marzipan, dried apple rings, roasted chestnuts, rum and raisin chocolate and pistachio ice-cream. After 14 years in a bourbon barrel we transferred this to a first-fill ex-red wine hogshead.
