Tasting Notes

After 14 years in ex-bourbon wood we transferred this into a first fill Spanish oak oloroso hogshead. The result is Andalucía in a glass – evocative of figs, dates, walnut trees, orange blossom, charcuterie, cigars and a sherry bodega. The palate is super sweet, earthy and pungent – gingerbread and sticky toffee pudding, dried fruits, sherry-soaked oak, chilli chocolate and a finish of nicotine tar, orange peel and spices. The nose after water suggested honey-roasted almonds with sea salt; armagnac-soaked prunes and burnt danish pastries. The palate’s candied nuts, marmalade, toffee and spice offered pure relaxation; fantasy island, daydream inspiration.
