    36.141 20yo refill barrel/ex-bourbon 60.7%
    Smell: The oil is very strong, glycerin, lemon, lime, honey yogurt, Fuyun spring wild jujube juice. After adding water, it is more fermenting aroma.
    Entrance: Hawthorn, jujube, sand fruit, cranberry cake. After adding water, it is more like yogurt.
    Tail rhyme: The wine is strong, the hawthorn and the creamy sense come in sequence, and there is no tannin.

    CASK No. 36.141
    Spicy & dry

    Vermouth de Provence
    A restraint, almost shy, character came across when nosing for the first time neat, but give it time as it is definitely well worth getting to know better. Slowly aromas of perfumed wood, apple tart laced with Calvados and topped with Chantilly cream as well a hint of peppermint pure essential oil were unveiled. The taste neat was much more forthcoming with warm apple cinnamon spiced turnovers and dark chilli chocolate. Water added on the nose the rich earthen smell of an autumnal forest floor with mushroom and truffle aromas, whilst on the palate like a herbes de Provence-infused Vermouth.
