An amazing red henna colour immediately attracted our attention and the gentle scent of sweet orange pure essential oil, perfumed leather and ripe strawberries dipped in powdered sugar made this a real sensual sensory sensation. The palate followed on with a Moroccan tagine of sweet apricots, sticky honey and tangy lemon. Water released aromas of a strawberry smoothie, new soft leather and chocolate covered macadamia nuts and the taste rounded it off perfectly, dark marc de Champagne truffles with an old fashioned Boulevardier cocktail. After fifteen years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky directly into a 1st fill Sauternes cask for the remainder of its maturation.
