Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy A

    Nose: Cherry jam, menthol, strawberries and black pepper. Sweet medicinal notes – cough linctus and red Strepsils – are joined by red and black liquorice, fruit and malt loaves, and spicy cinnamon fireballs.

    Palate: It starts with rich and spicy fruit cake – Dundee cake with dates rather than almonds on top – and rich Christmas pudding. The cherries from the nose then rush in, along with bitter liquorice pastilles and sweet Bertie-Bassett-shaped Liquorice Allsorts. Behind the sweet and fruity notes is a layer of charred oak bitterness, rich earthiness and hot cinnamon spiciness.

    Finish: Dry spice, stewed apple, dates, Ryvita and cinnamon gobstoppers.

    Comment: It may have only been in a cask for a short time, but it’s picked up a lot of sherry character.
