Description

On the nose we found jammy fruits, nuts and candle wax mixed with wet paint and cream. The palate gave us Christmas: cinnamon, oranges, cloves and chocolate, with ground pepper and chilli flakes. Diluted, its nose said summer, wafting warm car seats and sun cream, but still heavy with chocolate and nuts, plus roast venison and the smell of old books. On the palate, Christmas took a back seat while honey and vanilla burst forth with tropical flowers, lime cordial, saffron hints and summer bonfires. This was matured in a bourbon hogshead for 15 years before being transferred to a first fill American oak oloroso hogshead.
