Cask No. 44.123  

Sweet taste of victory

Speyside, Spey

We imagined sitting in the changing room of a boxer getting ready to enter the arena, the aromas of toffee sweetness, salted caramel and butterscotch from the expectant audience reaching back stage. On the palate neat the first round started and the first punch was heavy – dry and spicy as we hit the polished wooden floor boards of the ring. Having ‘survived’ the initial onslaught we were sitting in our corner. Water had revived us and the scent of Vaseline on the cut as well as the adrenaline in our veins led us to finally win the fight and we wore the leather title belt over our shoulder - sweet taste of victory!
