Description

The nose teased us with coquettish sweetness – demerara, toffee, salted caramel, raisins and dark chocolate orange. Sweet on the palate too (honey, sweet vanilla), before ginger and chilli chocolate heat appeared –– but throughout the whole experience the re-charred cask left ghostly whispers – dry sherry astringency, polished oak, treacle on toast and burnt wood. The reduced nose picked up candied violets and incense, banoffee ice-cream and clotted cream fudge. The palate combined that floral element with cereals, tangerines, cherry liqueurs, Earl Grey tea and rich tea biscuits – the spiciness now unmistakable pink peppercorns and still that persistent reminder of sawdust and wood.
