Intrigued? You should be.
“This reminds me of lemon zabaglione with blueberries” which was followed by the comparison to “clementine possets with cranberry compote and cinnamon puff pastry palmier to dip” – intrigued? You should be! On the palate elegant and measured with tannins that gave structure and the persistence of red berries laced with notes of liquorice and coffee. Add a drop of water a berry fresh fruit salad with a honey-lime dressing unveiled its charm and to taste mixed spices in a blueberry cake batter. After ten years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a 1st fill charred red wine barrique.
