Cask No. 133.1

Speakeasy sneaky peeky

Washington, USA

We found the nose fruity (apple orchard at pressing time, pineapple, lemon, cherry, marmalade) and woody – (cigar boxes, cricket bats in a church) – yet attractive, clean and elegant. The palate had lovely Jaffa cake, marshmallow and tea-cake sweetness, plus lots of spice – coconut curry, Peshwari naan, Liquorice Allsorts, nutmeg and clove. The reduced nose was a sneaky peek into a speakeasy – lacquered wood, floral perfume, cigar smoke and booze. The palate now slipped over like coffee and walnut ice-cream or hot chocolate – we also found Russian caramels and jammy dodgers and a sweet anise and liquorice finish. Intensely interesting.

Drinking tip: While watching American gangster movies.
