Sweet, Fruity & Mellow

Cask No. 63.42  

Fresh orange sherbet

Speyside, Spey

The attractive summery perfumed sweet fruity aroma of orange sherbet greeted the Panel. This one was made with freshly-squeezed orange and lemon juice, orange zest and, for that extra kick, a spoonful of Triple sec (orange flavoured liqueur from dried peels of bitter and sweet oranges). The taste neat was light and airy like a Pavlova with kiwi, pomegranate and mint – crisp on the outside with a creamy chewy middle. When adding water a perfumed note of rosewater appeared next to the still refreshing sweet creamy notes as we indulged in a Turkish delight ice cream and a tongue tingling lightly sparkling ginger beer.
