Notes

We were transported to the countryside, strolling among pine forests, cedar trees and wild cherries, with stacks of freshly cut logs and geraniums growing here and there. Spicier images of apple chutney and tamarind paste evolved into sultanas, treacle and natural beeswax with a sprinkle of black pepper and cherries soaked in Spanish brandy. Water provided permission to open a fine bottle of oloroso sherry. Its aromas brought hazelnuts and walnut husks into the mix alongside dried orange segments and golden syrup. Spicy notes made way for nut oils and syrup before strong black tea delivered a rounded finish. At 13 years of age, we combined two casks from the same distillery into this cask for further maturation and marrying.
