Cask No. 36.163 

A bliss moment

Speyside, Spey

The first comments nosing neat were ‘complex’ and ‘balanced’. Aromas of sweet wine, sweet tobacco, oranges, Turkish delight and the dream of every whisky lover came to mind – walking down the aisle of a dunnage warehouse removing the bung and hessian sack of a cask and smelling inside. We did not stop there and took the valinch and tried a sample –sheer luxury! Words don’t do it justice; creamy chocolatey fruits of the forest fudge, hot buttered crumpets and add to that a little of the cask char – heaven! We added a teardrop of water and balsamic strawberries next to a little sweet spice appeared and to taste, sarsaparilla tiramisu with caramel sauce.
