SANDALWOOD OLIVE PRESS
Cask No. 150.4
LAST BOTTLE IN CANADA AVAILABLE AT STRATH LIQUOR MERCHANTS IN VICTORIA
The nose opened with ginger cake, cinnamon sticks in a herbal infusion, blood orange and Jelly Tots. Some pineapple syrup, white stone fruits, pomegranate sorbet and trampled white flowers. Water brought out some gentle notes of coffee, freshly cut daffodils, lemon peelings and white balsamic. The palate showed a slight fizziness, liquorice stick dipped in sherbet powder, lots of tinned fruit salad syrups, Juicy Fruit chewing gum and passionfruit sours.
With water it became more sweetly cereal and full of pollens, glazed vanilla pastries, custard doughnuts and lemon barley water. Matured for 8 years in a bourbon barrel before being transferred to a 2nd fill ex-Tempest Brewing "Old Fashioned IPA" barrel.
