DEEP AND COMPLEX - SWEET AND EARTY

$168.96

The initial nose of desiccated coconut and pipe tobacco gradually opens to lemon meringue pie, apricot flan and rose bay willow-herb in wasteland, with background hints of wood, liquorice and tar. The deep, complex palate combines sweet and earthy notes; butterscotch, dark chocolate, caramelized bananas, Eccles cakes and ginger snaps, with tarry ship’s timbers and salty pork scratchings.

Water shifts the nose to straw, dried seaweed, celery, pepper, Tunnock’s Snowballs and new fence timbers. The palate becomes easier and sweeter – coffee and walnut fudge, toffee, brandy snaps and dried dates. After seven years in ex-bourbon wood we transferred this into a 2nd fill moscatel hogshead.
