Cask No. 1.227     

A merry adventure!

Speyside, Spey

Childhood memories of walking through the forest and finding a good hazel stick to make a bow for playing Robin Hood. We took a rest and, in our rucksack, we had a big slice of spiced (cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger) popping candy chocolate tart. When we added water we imagined walking to the archery contest organised by the Sheriff of Nottingham and from the market stalls aromas of vanilla sponge, coconut oil, freshly baked bread and roasted nuts reached us before we split the arrow from another contestant and celebrated with wagon wheels – two biscuits with a marshmallow sandwich filling covered in a chocolate coating.
