2nd Fill Sherry Butt, finished in 1st fill Calvados Cask
You’d expect apple but this is almost overwhelming, from opening the bottle to the first pour the air is filled with the scent of somewhat Granny Smith apple, lychee, apple compote. Once the apple has had its way, it disappears to leave a surprisingly light, white floral note with a touch of barley sugar and almond flan, leather and linseed oil.
Again apple, but this time layers of sweet apple, caramelised in butter and served with toffee; peached pear - delightfully sweet, a with touch of clove rock, key lime pie and lemon, cardamon and a touch of red spice.
A brief, powerful explosion of anise, crunchy apple, lemon drizzle, and oak that develops into a long, clean earthy finish that linger peculiarly at the back of the palate, tickling the throat, with a touch of cedar and tobacco.
