Cask No. 123.25

Joyful impressions of Spring

Highland, Southern

The nose delivers joyful impressions of Spring – caramel, Toffifee sweetness, vanilla, pineapple and subtle perfume (jasmine, bergamot), eventually finding pine timber, ginger and cinnamon. Those warm spices are much more evident on the palate – moist gingerbread, ginger snap biscuits, mincemeat pies and cinnamon-dusted apple cake – while still holding golden syrup and brown sugar sweetness and fruit (cherry, apple, pear, orange oil). With water, we identified millionaire’s shortbread, candied fruits and a bouquet of flowers on the nose. The palate suggested dried apple rings and quince jelly, with a touch of white pepper – playful and lively in the mouth and very enjoyable.
