Cask:First-fill Spanish oak Oloroso Hogshead
After 13 years in ex-bourbon wood we shifted this into a first fill Spanish oak oloroso hogshead. The result is a potent primrose path of spirituous stimulation – our noses found prune and armagnac tart, plum wine and Peshwari naan, hothouse flowers, treacle toffee and cough syrup. The palate was perfumed and penetrating, with moscatel wine, coconut and jam teacakes, tangerines, cocoa butter and candied walnuts; finishing with ginger and cloves. The reduced nose – Seville orange marmalade, old sherry, camomile tea, cinnamon swirls, and apple and rhubarb crumble. The palate gave us briny olives and charcuterie, oaked rioja and chocolate raisins, with dry leather on the finish.
