Can you pick out the ‘haute cuisine’ aromas from a dish consisting of sea buckthorn curd, meringue, yoghurt sorbet and wholemeal shortbread? Let us come back to earth as the taste was incredible smooth, sweet and gentle, creamy fudge, cherry chocolate fondant as well as lychees and melon in a lemon grass syrup. Diluted we brewed a cup of Earl Grey tea and added demerara sugar while on the palate velvety sweet, fruit syrup with a touch of cocoa powder and in the finish candied lime peel. The mash bill for this bourbon consists of 51% corn, 45% wheat and 4% malted barley, matured in a #4 char new oak barrel with #2 char heads.
