'You Spin Me Right Round Baby'
N: Curry [Dansak or Rogan Josh], mixed aromatic spices, blackcurrant cough sweets, pancakes & so much more, ill be back
T: Chlorine, cinnamon, licourice, chilli wood spice, sherry, rum, fresh water duckweed, then more spice
F: Ends with that rye/bourbon sweetness
C: Has front and back palate tastes, amazing journey, start to finish, perfect balance. This is a must drink with water. Then the palate turns into cream
Last dram [ten months after opening]:
N: Apple pie, sherried raisins, apple cider, buttercream, blackcurrant cough sweets [Lockets] check in again, fruit punch, maple syrup, trifle, treacle, almonds, cream-eggs, banana pancakes, rum, fruit liquors, more cider - big pear cider nose, yep
T: Rum, cherries, sugary stewed fruits with treacle. Since opening, the palate has unified somewhat. Its less petulant, more controlled. The boozy sherried treacle fruits seem to swirl around the mouth together as if they'd been gently stirred with a wooden spoon over a low heat for a good stint
F: Some wood showing, bringing a slight bitter black treacle/molasses edge. This compensates wonderfully with the rich sweetness of the rye. That molasses comes round again, swirling around. Candy, vanilla and cream soda at the death
C: What an epic dram. Its matured with ten months of breathing time and its just as splendid, if not more so. The journey pictorial is a swirl: round and round and round again.
