Notes

The gorgeous initial nose was full of mentholated, aromatic sherry styles: lots of eucalyptus, dried mint, damp rolling tobacco, fennel seed, tea tree oil and figs poached in armagnac – sumptuous and hugely enticing. Water brought roasted peanuts, Serrano ham, cranberry gravy, wintergreen and heather flowers. The palate was feisty, with pink peppercorns, superbly sweet minty notes, wild herbs, gingerbread, treacle, and camphor and menthol balm. With water we got flower nectars, aged calvados, fruity waxes, melon cordial and exotic fruit teas, with a lingering rancio in the aftertaste. After maturing for 13 years in a bourbon hogshead, this was transferred to a first fill American oak PX hogshead.
