Notes

The nose instantly evokes leather boots dancing on a wooden floor; also muscovado, tea chests, blackcurrant bushes and candied orange slices. The palate experiences a big bold red wine, cherry Tunes, sugared almonds and Brazil nuts, with a lingering finish of tobacco, menthol, ginger, nutmeg and clove. The reduced nose finds treacle, brandy snaps and sweet toasted coconut. On the palate we are now back in the flamenco tavern – manchego, matured Serrano ham, pipe tobacco and Mantecados de vino from Estepa. An Andalusian adventure in a glass. After ten years in ex-bourbon wood, we transferred this into a first-fill Oloroso hogshead.
