Bourbon Hogshead
Batch 14.0508.19
Dist: 2008 Btl: Dec 2018
Tasted: Jun 2019
A lovely dense and honeyed nose. Some straw-like notes make it feel a little older than 10 years. Chunky but balanced vanilla oak appears along with hints of apricot, pear, wood smoke, gooseberry, fennel and sweet barley.

The palate opens with a good dollop of sweet honey, barley and vanilla. The alcohol put the brakes on the sweetness but a little toffee comes through along with some subtle herbal notes. Quite masked but some gristy barley, apricot, lime, tangerine and granulated sugar can be discerned in the finish.

Water emphasises the youth and fruitiness of the nose and brings out some orange, tangerine and lime. Still quite honeyed and faintly herbal with more minerals, white liquorice and malt. Dilution has unshackled the palate! Fuller, richer and more honeyed with sugar coated barley, orange, apricot and lemon. Balanced, mouth-filling and mineral middle. Long, juicy and orangey with lingering barley, minerals and sweet fruit.
