Description

The nose brimmed with fruit (mango syrup, melon, papaya, pomegranate, pineapple, banana) and hints of bicycle tyre. The palate also picked up nuances of muscovado, clove, blackcurrant, eucalyptus oils and calvados. The reduced nose found rosewater, star fruit, yellow plums, kumquats and flambéed banana. The palate now encountered coconut (sweetie tobacco), cherry pieces in dark chocolate and old dessert wines served in a stable, but in truth, sipping this in The Vaults, we dreamed of Hemingway at his local bar counter, Caribbean crofts and limbo dancing in a kilt. After 19 years in ex-bourbon wood this was transferred into a first-fill sauternes barrique.
