Heavyweight fruit plunged us into figs, dates and sticky dessert wine as hazelnut chocolate merged with soft leather and pipe tobacco in a teak casket. Velvety flavours swirled in the mouth, encapsulating golden sultanas, prunes and raisins mixed into a thick wedge of fruit cake. A tart tang of kumquat joined emerging spice as cinnamon joined the party. Floral aromas complemented the heavy fruits after a dash of water. Now orange blossom and lemon meringue pie mixed with prune juice and toffee in molasses. Finally, creamy custard oozed over scones with marmalade as chocolate flakes sprinkled onto grapefruit and pomegranate. After spending ten years in an ex-bourbon hogshead this was transferred to a first fill ex-sauternes barrique for the remainder of its maturation.
