Spirit NOTES

This bottle is limited to 2 per member

Plenty of dark fruits to start with; plums, damsons and sloes were followed by the homely scent of warm apple pie muffins with walnut glaze and poppy seeds. Plenty of spice on the palate neat, but beautifully balanced by an oaky sweetness, black cherries and dark chocolate, prunes and mincemeat as well as cinnamon swirls and a red Pineau de Charentes. Reduced, the nose developed blood orange segments soaked in Port and candied orange peel, while to taste; cured venison bresaola with roasted, honey dressed root vegetables such as parsnip, sweet potato and celeriac. After 15 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a shaved-toasted-re-charred and oloroso seasoned first fill barrique.
