This distillery is more commonly known for sherry maturation these days so the panel was both eager and curious to try this example from refill bourbon maturation. We found a vibrant nose full of mille-feuille, vanilla foam, sliced pineapple, black cherries in brandy, fresh pastries and an eventual slide towards mineralic, gravelly qualities.
Water brought notes of rosehips, Turkish delight, marjoram, lime curd and pink lemonade. The palate revealed notes like crushed Ivy, jelly beans, lavender icing, lychee, young Gewurztraminer and turmeric. Water softens everything and opens up herbal ice cream, tamarind, green oak, toasted mustard seeds and ripe apricot.
