The nose neat was all over the place, dusty hay bales, fruit flavoured candy powder and white chocolate cheesecake, finally settling with a bubbly peach Bellini cocktail. The taste neat was like sticky chewy gingerbread toffee, apple wood spice and cardamom panna cotta with honeyed figs. Water released a floral, woody and slightly fresh earthy aroma whilst on the palate now a mix of exotic flavours and spices like caramel, coconut and cinnamon popcorn. After 16 years in an ex-bourbon refill hogshead, we transferred this whisky directly into a 2nd fill custom made hogshead for the remainder of its maturation.
