Tasting Notes

Nose

Quite an effusive nose, with a sooty/charred note coming from (double?) oak. This is more about dried plum and cranberry. Sweet and subtle.

Palate

Fat and jammy. The fruits are ripe alongside some pecan but sweetness. Water however accentuates the oak and some stalky tannin. Hard to tell what this was before the secondary casking took place.

Finish

Butter, coffee and oak.

Comment

For me the cask is over-dominant.
