A complex dram that does even more than its name suggests. Matured in a combination of seven different types of oak – first bourbon and then a finish in each of Vosges, Jupilles, Les Bertranges, Allier, Tronçais, and Limousin casks. The result is spicy but run through with chocolate and fruit, thanks to wide range of flavours from the casks.
Perfumed notes of summer meadows lead into chocolate-covered raisins and rich, creamy oats. Hints of menthol follow, accompanied a mixture of red jams: strawberry and raspberry. Weightier dried fruit notes build, accompanied by a hint of something fresher and more tropical.
Rich and creamy, with coffee and chocolate initially swamped by toasted spice notes: cinnamon, nutmeg and black pepper. Crunchy apples and pears roll in along with freshly squeezed oranges and their zest.
Mint chocolate notes linger on the palate, with apple skin and a touch of creamy coffee.
