Cask Strength 2020
Peggy Noe Stevens
Beautiful caramel and oriental spice notes. Soft cocoa and coconut with almond nougat. Oak presence with an underlay of smoke.
Big and bold with spice out front –
cayenne, paprika and cinnamon. Oak tannins for days, creamy vanilla and tweaks of marshmallow and smoke with dark raisin.
Spice cascades slowly into a rich and subtle caramel finish.
Adore the blast of spice at the get go and has staying power until the final breath.
Orange peel, orange blossom, and light cinnamon present before an aroma of vanilla custard. Second nosing finds caramel and prominent citrus.
Rich caramel segues into chocolate, with lots of orange peel and cinnamon. Roasted nuts and white pepper round it out.
Long, warm, and dry. Sweeter aromatics fade, leaving the oak to mark the ending.
Be generous with water and be rewarded with milk chocolate and allspice.
