Spirit Notes

The initial whiff of over-ripened pineapple and a struck match soon faded and comforting aromas of Hong Kong style egg tarts as well as apricot & frangipane tarts fresh from the oven emerged. Round and smooth on the palate neat like sweet cream and cookies ice cream and homemade custard creams biscuits, but then every so often spices and tannins peek through making this an engaging experience. With water we found ourselves again far afield with Japanese sweetened adzuki red beans and lemon verbena tart with physalis compote. After 14 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky directly into a 2nd fill Sauternes barrique for the remainder of its maturation.
