    A toasted 1st fill hogshead is credited, though we are informed that this was fully matured in one refill hogshead. I bring up the confusion over instances where a brief finishing or re-racking cask gets the maturation credit. Charles doesn’t seem too bothered about it either way, only the result really counting. Fair do’s.

    N: The initial few sniffs indicate we may finally be getting somewhere with this flight. A sweet & welcoming, not quite overly blatant, sherry cask brings forth all the mince pies - despite also being big on bourbon. Extras include dusty spices and perfumed spiced fruit.
    T: Butterscotch, heathery herbal fudge, polish, ECOS varnish, linseed oil,… There’s a big bruising Balcones vibe here also.
    F: This soon falls in line with familiar bourbon>fudge action and a hark to a rye mash bill [The Foz]. I also found it salty and herbal with dark wood/fence panels. We’ve a dusty, ashy and really rather bitter conclusion.
    C: A cask-centric whacky whisky “that has lost it’s distillery character”, adds Charles. The balance is shot, though i like it in comparison to tonight’s modest offerings.

    Deep copper in colour. A winey top-note (Madeira?) supported by natural turpentine, linseed oil and fresh tropical fruit salad, on a base of fragrant oak shavings. A still wet still life of tropical fruits (in oils) comes to mind. Water reduces these attractive aromas but doesn’t alter them. The taste is sweet and oaky, with some black pepper and a cool, mentholic aftertaste.
