The nose approached with a delicate restrain, softly laden with the barbecued wafts of bacon, roasted sweet potato and smoked chestnuts on ham. Toasted banana mingled with singed porridge and the freshness of lemon skin on the sea breeze. The palate was less than restrained with a giant sized smack of delicious peppered steak and ribs in barbecue sauce. Sweet and sticky with a tongue tingling twist of cloves and char before caramelized onion chutney blended with lavender and lemon lollies. The finish carried the meaty delights of glazed ham and beef stock with salted almonds and burnt wood. After spending 10 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead this was transferred to a 2nd fill white wine barrique for the remainder of its maturation.
