- Notes taken from my blog:
his one really has originality with a vatting of casks that we don’t see together very often. Can’t find this association anywhere on top of my head, but it’s not like I did an extensive search either to be honest. The nose really has personality, but the palate is slightly inferior. I was surprised to find red wine notes instead of the sweet white wine that is Moscatel, but it was a pleasant dram I’d happily go back to.
The nose starts on orange marmalade, tobacco leaves and yeast (almost Marmite) There are also some notes of smoked meat on the BBQ with dried herbs, a bit of citrus and winey notes.
The arrival is sweet with a slight touch of bitterness, then a pinch of pepper. The yeast from the nose is present on the palate too, and wine notes, but red wine notes (more Bordeaux than the Burgundy). There is some dark chocolate again after some time, espresso, and the mouthfeel becomes quite creamy over time.
Cracked pepper, dried espresso crema foam, ginger, citrus, a feasty medium long finish.
- A vatting of casks resulting in 72% Moscatel, 28% Imperial stout.
