Cask No. 7.133

A bag of boiled sweets

Speyside, Lossie    

Very prickly to start, then develops into zingy boiled sweetsacid drops, lemon sherbets; fresh overall, but with an oaky base, especially apparent on the tongue. Water introduces canvas and plastic (new trainers), warm leatherette (the interior of a new Jaguar), the sweet freshness now sour green apples and travel sweets dusted with icing sugar. The taste is sweet, then immediately sour; spritely, with mulled wine spices and a warming finish. This would drink well straight from the freezer in a chilled martini glass.
