Notes

An immediately robust and punchy nose of smoky bacon, spearmint, herbal teas, balsamic vinegar and spicy wood extracts. Black pepper, anthracite, BBQ sauce, wood embers, dried rosemary and liquorice. A big petrichor quilt lies over everything. With water we found softer notes of cocoa, dark chocolate, sticky toffee sauce, prunes in armagnac, cloves, damson chutney and roast chestnuts. The palate opened with Irish coffee liqueur, dark fruit gums, toasted wood spices, stem ginger, eucalyptus throat sweets and vapour rubs. Reduction brought yellow plums, potting shed earthiness, toffee apple, mint jelly, honey roast root vegetables and strong stout beers. Matured for ten years in a bourbon hogshead before being transferred to a first-fill Vosges oak hogshead.
