Description

The nose – pilgrims on dusty roads to El Rocío: wooden wagons, leather harness, sun-warmed pine trees, pipe tobacco and men’s cologne, nutty pastries and chestnuts dipped in acacia honey. The palate – evening falls: a cigar and a glass of sweet sherry wine at sunset; cinnamon rolls, toasted pistachios, jamon with melon and grilled padrón peppers. Water brought plum pie, apricot, candied orange and leather trousers in a humidor to the nose – and stewed damsons, lemon, and a bitter/fruity/herby Italian apéritif to the palate; finishing with currywurst and beef jerky. After 12 years in ex-bourbon wood this was introduced to a first fill Spanish oak oloroso hogshead.
