Cask No. 73.111

A fruity perfumery

Speyside, Deveron

The nose unleashed an amalgamation of talcum powder, flower gardens and melon to provide a delightfully perfumed introduction. Then banana fused with overripe apples as the palate delivered fresh ginger with cloves and mace to give a refreshing appeal that hinted at peppermint. A few dashes of water suggested perfumed soap and pine needles with the sweet embrace of balsa wood. Vanilla cones followed alongside marshmallow and honeydew melon before dried grapefruit skin offered a tart balance. The finish became drier as walnuts came wrapped in dark chocolate and dusted with nutmeg and bergamot flowers.
