Description

The dark, brooding nose has chocolate and marmalade cake, dark cherries, cinder toffee, orange muscat wine and bramble liqueur; maybe some leather. The palate finds earthy, fruity flavours – fruit cake, damson jam, orange peel, Old English Spangles, cinnamon toast and cough syrup. The reduced nose gradually surrenders its secrets – spiced plums, orange Aero, sandalwood, mango stone, espresso, Peshawari naan, Cherry Tunes, etc. The reduced palate is like a metaphor for living – sweetness and spice laced with mystery – petits fours, moist ginger cake, Grand Marnier and tiramisu. After 17 years in a port pipe we re-racked this into a second-fill, high-toast/medium-char puncheon (made from European oak).
