The kind of aroma that only time can wring from beautiful distillate and a gentle cask. We note oxidised cooking apples, chanterelle mushrooms, leaf mulch, heather honey, wine cellar must, hessian, Vimto grape juice and various wee aromas of polished furniture and prunes soaked in armagnac. When reduced the fruit ripened and we got mango flesh, kumquats and then old sports leather, waxed teak furniture, fungi earthiness and softer green tea and marzipan. The mouth detonated with red apple, truffle oil, lemon peel, bergamot, ripe papaya, honeycomb and maple syrup. Some funky cider apples bobbing underneath. With water - more green tea, pineapple chunks, kirsch, dark chocolate and an impression of game meats, old leather and exotic herbal teas.
