Notes

Initial waves of intense bourbon and vanilla washed over us. For all the intensity, there was remarkable balance. Fresh oak sweetness, perfumed herbal notes in the form of lavender and Earl Grey, sherbet fizz, depth from cherry chocolate liqueurs, sour pickled plums, spice from ginger and cinnamon and sticky savoury spare ribs. The taste developed these themes; spicy and sweet flavours, raisins, baklava, strawberry chocolate liqueur, white chocolate, black cherry, pencil shavings, coffee and over ripe pears. A splash of water enhanced the fizz (lemon sherbet), but the deeper/darker elements remained; black forest gateau, almonds, spices in a South East Asian market, tannin from stewed fruit tea.
