What a nose! Cola cubes, candy corns, rumtopf and apricot flan with shisha pipes, pomegranate molasses and polished wood - it’s aromatherapy in a glass! The palate is a chewy, juicy elixir of euphoria – pineapple, toffee apples, Old English Spangles, grenadine and blackcurrant-soaked oak – then a finishing flicker of mulled wine and wood spice.
The reduced nose is a delightful chameleon of glazed plums, honey, jelly beans, golden syrup on buttered toast and Amarena cherries. The palate now – wickedly seductive and sweet – Peshawari naan and dessert wine. After 26 years in a bourbon barrel we moved this into new oak.
