Description

Cask 9.167 Part of the furniture | 23 years | alc 55.0 | Refill ex-bourbon hogshead | Outturn 218 bottles  | Old & dignified

Fat, glistening, syrupy green fruits brim from the glass. Yellow herbal liqueurs, tropical fruit chunks, aged mead, citrus oils, herbal resins, roasted chestnut, old dessert wines and camphor. Water shifts things towards salted caramel, white chocolate mousse, eucalyptus oils, pine cones, cough mixtures, red liquorice, charcoal, old leather-bound books, damp sackcloth and melon sweeties. The palate opens on grape must, aged white madeira, pomegranate molasses, strawberry syrups, mango jelly, lime cordial, soft waxes, dried mint, light rancio and hessian. With a delicate drizzle of H2O there’s pot pourri, barley sugar, wax, muesli, fruit jams, grapefruit pith, orange cocktail bitters and butter biscuits.

Aromas arrived with a thick frame of cedar wood that echoed elements of eucalyptus with a fresh and lively spirit. Peering through the frame we discovered a scene of dried flowers and brandy snaps as sweeter notes of white chocolate, caramel and custard came into focus. The palate reflected elements of raspberry jam but quickly became drier as fennel seeds, lemon and chilli came to the fore. Suggestions of burnt orange skin encouraged pancakes with bacon to merge into sweet malted barley. With water came cranberry juice and limes with crunchy green leaves. Sweetness wafted around like pink wafers but became bound by forest logs, green peppercorns and a bitter coffee finish.
