Notes Nose: From the exquisite aroma there is no mistaking the influence of the ex-Bourbon casks with the light sweet spicy notes of Vanilla, Cinnamon and even a tincture of Clove. All balanced with Apples and Pears, some charred wood and freshly cut hay.

Palette: The initial sip is a burst of rich flavours, sweet with Vanilla delicately bolstered by Black Peppercorns, reluctantly giving way to a succulent fruity mid-section before slowly fading to leave a very satisfying grassy cereal conclusion.

Finish: The fullness of the body fades quite quickly but leaves behind a lingering succulent flavour of Barley and Oak. A touch of creamy dairy fudge and Dark Chocolate adds to the complexity.

Notes Nose: A wonderful combination of soft bourbon notes and a light malty subplot with a light sprinkling of ginger.

Finish: Long, chocolate, rich and sophisticatedly spiced.
