After 13 years in ex-bourbon wood, we transferred this into a first-fill American oak PX hogshead. On the nose, red apple and walnut morph into cherries, raisins and prunes, eventually resembling a Dali-esque landscape where treacle melts over a bodega. The palate develops prunes, dates and figs, accompanied by croissants smeared with Nutella. The reduced nose finds chocolate-coated raisins and sultanas, browned butter and caramelised sugar – citric notes also emerge (orange blossom, blood orange). The reduced palate is a lip-smacking assortment of berries and fruits (bramble, cassis, raspberry ripple, cherry jam, plum and grape) with a dry finish of allspice and mace.
