Bourbon/ Sherry
Tasted: Apr 2014
A beautiful combination of sawdusty American oak and mature sherry. Full, fleshy and very herbal with hints of sultana fruit cake, cinnamon and a light orange/ Satsuma. A light Cognac-esque rancio emerges but the sweet barley fills out. With time the American oak powers through giving the aromas a lovely, buttery character.

The palate is moist and succulent, like the nose it is a lovely combination of sawdusty American oak and raisinated fruit sherry. Full and mature with again an oxidised fruit rancio. Lovely spicy middle, quite peppery as well with a real black peppercorn character. Quite an oily, lightly floral finish � rose and violets plus lingering dusty, spicy dried fruit and a lightly herbal after-taste.
