タイトル: Cocoa-scented library dust / ココアの香りがする図書室のほこり

31年間ex-bourbon hogsheadで熟成した後、first fill American oak oloroso hogsheadに移し替え。

A thick layer of dark cocoa powder coated the soft buttoned leather of old library armchairs while the air was sweet with the scent of clotted cream fudge and juicy plums. Leather merged into heather, honey and raisins while from the kitchen came wafts of rich venison casserole. The tobacco pipe-smoking baker had arrived with a dash of water, bringing a delivery of brioche, maple syrup sponge cake and warm bramley apple pie. Perfect timing we thought, as we served sweet black tea with tangy marmalade on sliced sultana cake and ginger biscuits. After spending 31 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead this was transferred to a first fill American oak oloroso hogshead.
