The nose delivered plum jam, plum pie and strawberry fruit leather – fruity, earthy and exciting – dried cranberries, orange muscat, chardonnay and valinch spillage. The palate was similar – Amarena cherries in syrup, tangerines and nectarines – but we also found tobacco leaf, dark brown sugar, tree bark and cinnamon toast – a lovely mouth-filling intensity. The reduced nose involved crème brûlée, old strawberry jam, tannic red wine, shoe leather and Indonesian long pepper. The palate softened to peach melba, Tangfastics, marmalade and tawny port, with a drying finish of wood spices. After 16 years in ex-bourbon wood, we transferred this into a first-fill Moscatel hogshead.
