We found ourselves very close to the naked heart of this traditionally sherry-cloaked distillate. A world of crushed oatcakes, buttermilk, barley water, pollen-laden yellow flowers, greengage plums, plush cereals, velvety white fruit jams and long-aged dessert wines. Fragrant, complex and extremely beautiful. With water we noted freshly milled grist, cooling wort, autolytic sourdough starter, honey cake and an elevated floral complexity. The palate opened with heather honey and milk bottle sweets. A natural, spirit-driven sweetness full of mango pudding, lactic stout ales, brioche, sultanas and flambeed banana drizzled with vanilla extract. With dilution came thicker and stodgier notes of olive oil cake, Victoria sponge, the warmth of English mustard powder, spiced custard, orange blossom, dried mint and a mouth-filling waxiness.
