Description

A rich concoction of dried fruits lay before us as dates mixed with sultanas and prunes soaked in Armagnac. Floral tones floated above like a bowl of pot pouri with a fresh edge that leaned towards spearmint. Sweet malty aromas brought a milky edge that carried earthy elements as we discovered rhubarb crumble with custard. The palate echoed the luxuriant temperament as dried apricots, figs and orange came wrapped in milk chocolate and with a sprinkling of black pepper and spice. Flowering heather reintroduced a floral layer that delivered a woodland scene resplendent in fresh fern. The character remained soft and juicy until the end with flavours that lingered long after the final sip. After spending 13 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead this was transferred to a 1st fill pedro ximinez hogshead for the remainder of its maturation.
