Young & spritely

Cask No. 39.167

A big tropical adventure

Speyside, Lossie

Layers of exotic fruit became entangled in a jungle of sweet fragrance as we chopped our way through the perfumed wilderness. Pink rose and jasmine exposed a path that led us to lychee and papaya dressed with a squeeze of fresh lime juice.  Ripe banana and pear progressed to pineapple and freshly peeled satsuma, before being coated by sweet pastry to form apple tarts. The palate carried a chewy mouthfeel like strawberry sweets and Turkish delight that dipped into hot and juicy realms. A green freshness transpired like apple skin mixed with cardamom pods and sweetened to ripe orange. Grapefruit and green wood encased the finish with the mouth-numbing feel of cloves.
