    Truly remarkable example of history, lineage, attention to maturation, and age. Cocoa powder, crystallised orange peel, and delicate PX.

    SMWS Tasting Notes: A subtle tropical and floral scent, like walking through a rose garden, mesmerized us. To taste a sense of spicy oak before a burst of juicy fruity flavours surprised us all. With a drop of water wax candles and veneered oak at first were soon followed by chilled caramelised orange slices with Greek yoghurt. On the palate now a summer delight with a difference; sweet succulent cherries with Neufchatel cheese sprinkled with Mexican cocoa powder; containing cinnamon and vanilla served with a thin, crisp chocolate cookie. After thirteen years in a 2nd fill bourbon barrel, we transferred this whisky into a 1st fill barrique from a privately owned small bodega, now in its 9th generation, that focuses exclusively on the Pedro Ximenez grape.
