Distilled by Hampden, this blend of marques is bottled at 55% ABV and comes as the fourth iteration in the Great House series.
Rich and funky, caramel forward with generous helpings of papaya, mango, banana and a pineapple funk that can only be described as bliss.
Moderate mouthfeel, some maple and brown sugar, Prickle of ethanol and then the fruit party starts for real. Light on oak, moderate tannin dryness with tons of papaya and pineapple. Mangle chutney and sweet cream.
Long finish, the funk picks up here, with ginger, pepper and lime zest making an appearance.
Great House remains great, and 2022 is no exception.
