Bourbon/ Limousin Casks
Tasted: Dec 2012
Beautifully soft and warm aromas of mature laddie – pear and baked apple with hints of spice, earth along with a gentle balsamic/ note. A gentle waft of Cognac rancio can be detected along with dried fruit, chocolate, black coffee and tight oak tannins. Very complex, gently coastal with hints of orange, liquorice and green apple.

The palate is soft and gently honeyed with lashings of mature spices, baked apple, liquorice and sugared almond. Its coastal character gives it a lovely fresh edge as does some green citrus notes. The oak does attempt to dry the palate but it is beautifully countered by the seductive honey and Cognac dried fruits/ walnuts. That coastal note returns on the finish to give a lightly mouth-watering finale. A truly magnificent bottling with the finishing casks accenting the mature laddie.
