Batch 004 was built around a 21 year corn component with lovely caramel, butterscotch and vanilla notes and a highly viscous and naturally sweet 25 year corn component aged in Hungarian oak that was dripping in molasses. We balanced the viscosity with spice and fruit from a combination of two different style ryes, both aged for 18 years. The first was aged in ex-Speyside scotch casks providing bright, fresh fruit. The second was aged in rechar American oak, which cut the viscosity in the mid palate with a distinct tingling cardamom and ginger quality. The spice from the rye teases out the concentrated burnt sugar quality of the 25-year-old casks.
Batch 004 presents sticky maple syrup, leather and mahogany wood extract on the nose. It is like bubbling-hot butterscotch drizzled on top of a Tahitian vanilla bean affogato mixed with caramelized red fruits, reminiscent of old French-style rum. The slick, viscous palate presents shortbread and chocolate-covered cashews dunked in a demerara river of oil and pure, liquefied sugarcane, followed by a spicy warm finish that tingles and envelopes your chest.
