Thomas Hardy’s Ale is a Barley Wine whose peculiar aromas and flavours can develop over the years with a taste that matures in a manner comparable to that of the finest red wines.
The first vintage dates back to 1968 and was inspired by the classic 19th century English Barley Wines. It was aged in oak barrels. Thomas Hardy’s Ale “The Historical” is a tribute to this time-honoured tradition. This project has been released in a Limited Edition with the goal of placing Thomas Hardy’s Ale in wooden barrels and adopting ageing techniques that change every year.
The 2017 edition of “The Historical” was aged for six months in American white oak barrels coming from a famous Tennessee Whiskey distillery: the result of this long procedure is a Barley Wine with a vinous quality and woody, smoky persuasive notes as well as a subtle hint of honey and a decidedly dry aftertaste.

Apresentou coloração âmbar escura turva sem retenção de espuma. No aroma temos cerejas em calda, madeira, uísque, baunilha, vinho do Porto e leve defumado. Na boca as notas permanecem, complementadas por ameixa e mel. Tem bom corpo, carbonatação amena e textura licorosa. Os quase 13% de álcool estão perfeitamente inseridos. Maravilhosa.
