Notes

We imagined preparing a hearty dish of turnip gratin in a creamy gruyere cheese sauce with smoky bacon. While in the oven bubbling and turning golden, we enjoyed a classic cola float and a slice of malt bread with raisins which we dipped into a peppercorn sauce. After the addition of water, sweet spices were released reminding us of gingerbread and cinnamon spekulatius next to plum sauce and dry-roasted peanuts. On the palate, beef olives with prosciutto and potato dumplings were washed down with a dandelion and burdock shandy. Following 11 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a first fill American oak PX hogshead.
