8 months maturation in 10 gallon (37ltr) and 15 gallon (56ltr) New charred American oak
Re- Tasted: June 2013
An explosively intense and lightly spiced nose with toasted corn and plenty of almost ‘French’ oak notes. Very fruity with hints of sultana, prune, dried grape, marzipan and malty spices. Soft, succulent with developing sandalwood and Java coffee. Oh, did I mention the spices? Oooh they’re stunningly crumbly and soft!

The palate is broad and juicy, opening with the lightly dried fruit and a serious corn intensity. Quite tannic with again a very ‘French’ oak character. Intense, nutty, wheat flake notes follow along with a touch of malt. For such a young spirit aged in very small casks the balance is very good and although it is quite oaky, it is not overblown. Superb length with the vanilla notes entwining with Java coffee, light pepper and sandalwood and finishing with an earthy, slightly buttery oak fade. Very more-ish!
