‘Oh, for a beaker full of the warm south’ – Keats nailed it. Whatever five years in bourbon wood achieved, the Spanish oak PX hoggie has given this flamenco dancer shoes; sublime spirit from the heather-clad slopes of Ben Rinnes wondrously infused with Seville orange blossom, Malaga wine and bodegas of Jerez; we were reaching for our castanets. The nose has multiple dried fruits, especially medjool dates and raisin ‘fly pie’, candied orange, Jaffa cakes and olive oil drizzled on tostadas. The palate has brandy snaps, caramelised almonds, crème brûlée, and toffee, with after tingles of nutmeg, leather, chilli chocolate and clove. Close your eyes and feel the sun.
