Description

A lovely deep fruity aroma like that of a raspberry pudding topped with roasted pecans, hazelnuts and warm vanilla sauce. The taste was delicious creamy – a chocolate mouse or a rose, raspberry and coconut fool of crystallized rose petals, double cream and toasted coconut flakes. Diluted we made a black currant crumble spicing it up with Aleppo pepper and a shot of a digestive bitter made from a variety of aromatic herbs and matured in Slovenian oak barrels. On the palate now dark chocolate truffles, marzipan and a finish of sweet dried figs. After nine years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a 1st fill Oloroso hogshead.
