An old bourbon? Oak masks the sour fruit. Chestnut. A few years less and it\rwould have been flamboyant.
Master's Collection, Maple Wood Finish
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Intense. Complex. Woody. Nail varnish.
Palate: Velvety. Oak is overwhelming. Sour/bitter flavours. Cranberries.
Finish: Dry, bitter.
Comment: An old bourbon? Oak masks the sour fruit. Chestnut. A few years less and it\rwould have been flamboyant.
Nose: Rich and sweet, dried fruits steeping in rum; touch of allspice and thick fruit syrups. A lick of varnish and leather suggest there's some age here, while hot sawdust gives a sweet dryness.
Palate: Rose petal, indeed Turkish Delight to start. Settles deeply on the tongue and moves slowly through the thick and chewy mid-palate before a lift of spice.
Finish: Flamed orange peel.
Comment: Deep, rich. The final recommendation from a cracking bunch.
