TITLE: Take a step back in time / タイムスリップしたような気分で

[香り]昔ながらの邸宅の大掃除がイメージに浮かぶ。 蜜蝋とテレビン油を混ぜたソフトセーム革を使い、ワックスをかけたティンバーフロアを若返らせ、カーペットには湿らせた茶葉を振りかけてから掃き掃除をする。
27年間sherry buttで熟成した後、first fill ex-rye barrelに移し替え。

We imagined spring cleaning a manor house the old-fashioned way. We rejuvenated the waxed timber floor with a mixture of beeswax and turpentine, using soft chamois leathers, and sprinkled the carpet with damp tea leaves before sweeping. On the palate, it was bursting with fruity sweetness before a salty, lightly ashy aftertaste. Following reduction the age was much more apparent, with centuries of cigar smoke in carpets and curtains, plus an elusive rancio note appeared at times. The taste was an absolute delight – elegant yet bold. At 27 years of age, we split the content of one sherry butt into two barrels. In addition to this first fill ex-rye barrel we also filled an ex-bourbon barrel to create an intriguing duo of releases.
