Complex as an American TV Series plot – the nose fascinated with toffee apples, marzipan, marmalade, wine gums, cinder toffee and a carpenter’s workshop. The rich, deep palate combined treacle, brandy snaps and dried fruits (figs, dates, sultanas, raisins) with herbal cough syrup and charred oak staves. On the reduced nose we found crème brûlée topping and dark chocolate combined with stem ginger, with crystallised orange and marzipan. The exceedingly tasty palate had orange peel and kumquat, apple and cinnamon and a drying, musky, mildly chilli-heated finish. After 13 years in ex-bourbon wood we transferred this to a first-fill PX hogshead.
