Dark amber hues hold an array of aromas spices, chocolate and coffee; cinnamon and dried fruit. Smooth and full-bodied, the flavour is equally complex, with hints of wood, toffee, caramel and liquorice. Such sweetness is sublime and surprising, and lingers long on the palate.
To obtain its unique flavour, 1888 is aged in medium toasted, ex-Bourbon American white oak casks for up to eight years. But that s just the start we then follow it with a second maturation, this time in first-fill Spanish oak casks previously used for ageing Oloroso sherry.
Luminous orangey hue with delicate, intense golden tints. Extremely fine in the first nose of dried fruits, the aromas are harmoniously complex __ between floral and fruity – developing towards candied fruit with an underlying oakiness, spiced with ginger and nutmeg hints. Well balanced and constantly offering new discoveries with flavors of cedar wood, vanilla and caramelized orange, leading into a very rounded finish.
Lustrous, antique gold with intense hints of amber. An open, complex bouquet combining nutmeg aromas with a dash of orange zest and sweet spice, backed with subtle hints of undergrowth. Concentrated, poised and well-rounded on the palate, with a velvety-smooth finish.
