The undiluted aromas felt like pure decadence, with black treacle dripping off a scone, brandy butter and gooey dark chocolate brownies, and lashings of honey. One panellist honed in on memories of plums soaked in Armagnac.  The taste started off with a blast of spicy heat but soon relaxed into linguine with a garlic langoustine sauce served with a drizzle of truffle oil and chestnut mushrooms. Water added leather & toffee notes, ripe cherries and slices of blood orange sorbet while on the palate now a sweet nuttiness, hot chocolate with cinnamon whipped cream and plenty of marshmallows and a solera gran reserva Spanish brandy de Jerez. After nine years in an ex-oloroso butt we transferred this whisky into a new oak, heavily charred puncheon.
