Cask No. 9.240
Silky smooth and sensually sweet
Flavour Profile:Sweet Fruity & Mellow
The initial nose was slightly autumnal, with lots of nutty innuendos – flaked almonds, baklava and toasted pistachios; also some pine sap and brioche aromas. The palate was silky smooth and sensually sweet – condensed milk and honey, with herbal suggestions coming after – bouquet garni, tarragon, marjoram and lemon thyme. With water the nose continued its autumnal journey, with nut skins and apple cores, but also now picked up the sweetness of cola cubes in a paper bag. The palate was sweet, fruity and well-balanced – fruit salad chews, fresh juicy melon and plums in syrup; finishing with a hint of muddled mint.
