Description

18.45 Hola oloroso!

The nose was rich and opulent with oily cured Spanish ham, ginger wine and prunes soaked in cream sherry. Sweet and spicy aromas of ginger wine and cinder toffee continued on the palate where they were joined by red apples, citrus peel and peaches. Creme caramel and coconut introduced creamy textures to compliment walnuts, pain au raisin and soft leather. With water came honey and linseed oil on exotic hardwoods with figs and grapes on black forest gateau. Orange oil and mandarins emerged on the palate with barbecued pineapple, toasted oak, and coconut while dark chocolate and menthol combined with soft wax on the finish. After spending 8 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead this was transferred to a first fill ex-oloroso hogshead for the remainder of its maturation.

36.189 Andalusian breakfast

We prepared a traditional Andalusian breakfast that consisted of tostada (a toasted bread called “pitufo” that has a crunchy exterior) with olive oil sprinkled over the top and accompanied by a cortado coffee. Initially a silky chewy texture with sweet fruitiness but this then morphed into fragrant incense smoke as well as strawberry and chilli jam. Diluted, we flambéed bananas in Cointreau and chargrilled sweet peppers, while to taste a dry Madeira called Sercial with typical flavours of walnuts, apricots and vanilla and to finish gentle tones of wood. Following ten years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a first fill custom toasted American (70%) and European (30%) oak hogshead with toasted heads.

41.146 Carved and crafted

We imagined a wood carver unrolling a leather pouch with all the tools ready to start a new project. On the palate there was plenty of fragrant wood flavours combined with autumn harvest baked apples with raisins, walnuts and cinnamon. After the addition of water, the scent of freshly baked rye bread combined with conkers and conifer cones made for a sweetish, herbaceous bouquet. The taste was that of Turkish oil cake once again with walnuts and raisins as well as pogaca a type of bread which is baked in ashes before being finished in the oven. Following thirteen years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a 2nd fill Oloroso hogshead.
