Nose: rich and rounded. Great polished oak up
front, immediately followed by thick honeyed notes and orange peel. Nice
pineapple candy in the background. Vanilla and almonds. Raisins. Some
hay and flowers (old roses). Very light spices. Excellent balance of
sherry and bourbon, both are clearly present and work well together. Mouth: velvety and quite dry. Much spicier now, plenty of ginger and
white pepper. A little nutmeg. Honey, apricot and (slightly tangy)
orange peel again. Oak and vanilla. Faint hints of dark chocolate.
Sweeter and fruitier with a few drops of water.
Finish: very long, with
Seville oranges, chocolate and nutmeg.
