Plenty going on from the word go – candlewax, balsamic vinegar, honeycomb, figs, and plums made this a real nosing dram neat. On the palate rum soaked cherries, salted dark bitter chocolate next to sweet barbequed ribs and raspberry plum jam and to spice things up a little – Indonesian long pepper. When we added water teriyaki sauce appeared and then creamy mushroom gravy made with plenty of Marsala wine. To taste now honey-caramelised pears and long pepper and vanilla bean shortbread cookies. After thirteen years in an ex-bourbon hogshead we transferred this whisky into a heavy charred new oak hogshead.
