The nose starts of with dark chocolate, dried apricots and raisins. The nose is quite winey ... pineaux de charentes style. Some orange zeste on the background with a hint of white pepper.
Exactly what i suspected ... sweet winey taste with a serious spicyness to it. Think of red curry, gingerbread and even some nutmeg. Also some green apples in there and a hint of pineapple.
The finish is more dark bitter chocolate with something nutty and even a whiff of fresh tobacco.
- SMWS notes:
The nose had mainly cereal and chocolate notes – chocolate malt and granola with dark chocolate nibs – also raisin fudge, chocolate gingers and tea chests. The palate had winey touches (Campari, Fernet Branca) but it was mainly spicy – liquorice root, nutmeg, anise, ginger snaps; Moffat toffees, dried dates and leather. The reduced nose – burnt raisins in cake, dried apricot, Branston pickle and marigolds. The palate now had toffee apple and treacle tart with the warmth of gingerbread and chilli roasted peanuts; leather and tobacco to finish. After 12 years in ex-bourbon wood we transferred this to a charred red wine first-fill barrique.
