Cask No. 28.31
Anything but Airy-Fairy!
Once upon a time we smelled rum and raisin mud cake with plenty of dark spiced rum, with chocolate covered macadamia nuts and sweet pickled figs. Quiet, dark and dense on the palate; Madeira infused pate with port-soaked apricots and prune cake, all washed down with Damson brandy liqueur. With water we felt we were being transported to the wicked witch’s gingerbread house in Hansel and Gretel - we broke a piece off the roof – delicious, juicy and mouth-coating. Nine years in a 2nd fill Oloroso sherry butt, finished in a virgin oak butt with a heavy toast and a medium char.
