It was a dark night and in the moonlight shadows lurked hazelnuts, walnuts and burnt orange skin. Soy sauce merged with maple syrup and oozed over the remains of bruised apples, smoked ham and linseed oil. Chewy flavours prowled around dark malted rye bread covered with marmalade, nutmeg and molasses before hot cross buns fell victim to banana flambé. The careful addition of water delivered a sophisticated selection of sweet pipe tobacco, golden syrup and buttered fruit scones supporting marzipan, soft leather and spearmint spice. Finally came a wicked amalgamation of sultanas and ginger cake before tea leaves and sandalwood left a lasting impression. After spending 31 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead this was transferred to a first-fill oloroso hogshead for the remainder of its maturation.
