An inviting aroma of dark cherries, marzipan, plum pudding and bramble jam while in the background a note of Black Forest kirsch salami. On the palate, again salami, but now ‘salame Felino’ from northern Italy, seasoned with Salsomaggiore salt, whole black peppercorns, white wine and garlic. After reduction, we found on the nose sour cherry and almond flapjacks, and baked Italian herb and parmesan meatballs. To taste, a Dark ’n’ Stormy cocktail using a fiery ginger beer alongside rum and fresh lime juice. Following nine years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a first fill marsala barrique.
