Notes

Cask No. 19.60      

Cosiness in a glass

Highland, Eastern

The nose was a rewarding combination of poached pears and stewed apples with golden syrup, salted caramel and maple candies, waxed jackets and old style wooden pencil boxes. The palate gave us tinned pears and apricots in syrup, crystallised ginger and Liquorice Allsorts, waxed canvas and hints of tobacco. In reduction, the nose delivered toasted coconut, honeyed dates and mint matchmakers, while the palate was a mouth-coating triumph of buttered crumpets and honey-drizzled muffins, pink wafers and golden syrup on toast, with a teasing finish of marmalade, mulling spices, eucalyptus and chewed pencil ends – toasty and warming; hygge in a glass.
