Notes

A tropical nose – maple candy, strawberry jam, walnut whip, molasses cake and Tropenfeuer (black tea with jackfruit and rose petals); polished wood, tobacco and liquorice. The palate, warm as a purring cat, evoked rich, chilli cocoa by a glowing ember fire, cinnamon, tar and euthymol on the finish. The reduced nose was a captivating complexity of marmalade, marzipan, croissants, jam and honey. The palate now had earthy sweetness – sticky dates, black bun, sweet tobacco, PX sherry trifle and bottled stout, with liquorice, tar, leather and anise on the finish. After 21 years in straight bourbon wood we transferred this into an ex-peaty bourbon barrel.
