Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Characterful, evocative nose filled with bonfire embers, leather shoes, egg-custard tarts, rich spicy aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, Demerara sugar, crème brûlée and bitter chocolate. Makes you dive in for a sip immediately!.
Ripe fruits at first – poached rhubarb, candied strawberries – then roasted almonds and hazelnuts, along with study, spicy notes of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg, with a gutsy sprinkling of black pepper. There’s also a strong dark-chocolate note binding everything together, along with dried fruit and a whiff of wooden desks and second-hand bookshops.
The rich spices from the oak mingle beautifully with the fragrant, fruity notes. The flavours last a very long time.
Absolutely delicious, this is a complex, characterful dram loaded with flavour.
