Bourbon Hogshead
Dist: Jan 2007 Btl: Feb 2019
Tasted: Mar 2019
A rich, decadent and fruity nose – pear, apricot, melon and apple. It’s a tsunami of fruit! Hints of tropical pineapple, barley, creamy oak and a kiwi top note. A lovely bracing salinity balances and with time the nose becomes slightly earthy with background peat and hints of straw.

The palate is big, juicy and fruity with a touch more barley and grippy oak. Good tannic styructure and a long, slightly smoky and earthy peat finish with hints of mouth-watering pear, apple, sweet spice and heather.

A drop of water brings out more kiwi and hints of mango and gentle citrus. The palate show a touch more oak but is still very fruit if a little less intense. Still long, juicy and spicy.
