The fruity nose (peaches, strawberries, orange syrup, Jolly Ranchers, wine gums) also had Battenberg and Turkish Delight sweetness and tiny traces of star anise. The palate was spicier and woodier – spiced fruits, clove and sauna wood, but also had honey, marzipan and boiled sweets – mouth-drawing, but full interesting. The reduced nose became more inviting – pineapple, coconut and travel sweets, apple and pear orchards and hints of mulled wine and Fisherman’s Friends. The palate now had dry pencil shavings, cigar leaf and peppercorns balancing three-fruit marmalade juiciness. After 15 years in ex-bourbon wood we transferred this to a first-fill Spanish oak Oloroso hogshead.
