Have you ever met a person in a cowboy’s tasselled jacket wearing a fragrance of cedarwood, leather accord and tobacco lifted by a hint of grapefruit? On the palate plenty of leather, red wine and tobacco entwined with cocoa nibs, cinnamon raisin bagels and blackberry brownies. Diluted cranberry orange granola bars made from oats, honey, nuts, dried cranberries and orange zest. Deliciously soft and chewy like toffee, Jaffa cakes, chocolate cherry fondant candies and a seemingly never-ending finish of roasted figs with pomegranate molasses and orange zest. After eleven years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a 1st fill charred with toasted heads, wine barrique.
