The aroma reminded us of a good Sunday lunch, pomegranate ginger glazed roast pork tenderloin and carrots or a herb-crusted leg of lamb with a red wine gravy. Big, no massive, on the palate neat! Heat alert, a thick and bold, spicy and slightly smoky Szechuan sauce. Water tamed the beast a little, a Thai tamarind stir fry or a Garam Masala chicken curry on the nose while the taste was that of macerated berries in a Greek Yoghurt with plenty of cinnamon, nutmeg and maze. Following seventeen years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a 1st fill Spanish oak Oloroso hogshead.
