Tasting Note:

'The Scarlet Blossoms Of Black Rock'

Distilled in 2006 from refill American oak casks finished in red wine casks, 55.5% ABV.

The colour of bright polished brass with gold highlights. On the nose it is fresh and lightly fruity, as gentle aromas of white grape and lychee mix with sharper hints of green apple, pear and a trace of orange zest, all enrobed by a hint of buttery pastry. Rising above these, a light spicy note reveals more of the wine-seasoned wood. A drop of water introduces a light note of meadow flowers, which become distinctly honeyed with time. Light to medium bodied, on the palate it is soft, creamy-smooth with the sweetness of home-made toffees. Soon, that taste becomes more fragrant and hints of Parma violets, a note further enriched by winey red apple and pear fruit and made more appetising still by crisp, clean oak. A dash of water softens it to a delightful creamy-sweet freshness, leaving just a hint of spice. The finish is short, sweet, clean and warming, with lingering perfume in the aftertaste.
