Pussers - Sailing DecanterRich Flavours
Colour: Deep, rich, Chestnut mahogany, crystal clear.
Aroma: A burst of classic Demerera greets the nose with a mix of brown sugar and molasses followed by dried fruits such as sultanas, prunes and exotic tropical fruits. Everything is sprinkled with a blend of island spices such as nutmeg, clove and cassia. The aroma finished beautifully with soft oak, caramel, and rich English toffee.
Body: Full, round and extremely smooth.
Taste: Very sweet on the tongue initially followed by a wonderful blend of sweet and bitter complexity. The taste delivers what the aroma promises which is classic Demerera brown sugar and a cornucopia of dried mixed fruits such as sultanas, prunes, and dried tropical fruits. Island spices coat everything in a subtle way. The finish is warm, and firm with gentle oak, caramel, and English toffee. Hints of sherry, leather and steeped tea add to the magic of this blend.
Finish: Warm, firm, pleasantly long, and memorable. There is absolutely no burn on the finish, and its strengths are its smoothness, which is surprising given that it is only aged for 3 years.
