Description

The unusual nose had suggestions of exotic fruit, burnt fruit cake in an airtight plastic tub and Santa’s boots up the chimney. The powerful palate had burnt raisins, sweet chilli-smoked mackerel and drinking a mug of hot chocolate in a wetsuit. The reduced nose found coffee and walnut gâteau, dark chocolate (with chilli or rum and raisin), coconut, cranberry and a stove-top cafetière rubber ring. The funky palate had jerk chicken and a deglazed roast beef pan, rum truffles, acacia honey and old toffees from a waxed jacket pocket. This was transferred from a regular bourbon barrel into an ex-Islay bourbon barrel after five years.
