Notes

About A kaleidoscope of flavour: 19 years in cask has created a universe of fruits to explore here. Orchard fruits are joined by berries, citrus and dried tropical fruits. Savoury herbs and Chinese five-spice keeps all this fruitiness in check for a deeply delicious dram!

Tasting Panel Note: Vanilla ice cream and fruity sweets joined honey on toast before funky notes of farmhouse cider, fermenting pears and overripe banana combined on a bed of hay. On the palate, delicate flavours of peach and raspberry tea complemented maple syrup, dried apricots and hot cross buns made with Chinese five spice. Water accentuated the juicy fruit aromas as a rainbow of candied sweets and strawberry shoelaces spread over fresh thyme, basil and sticky pine sap. The sweetness on the palate now carried a zingy character as tart raspberries merged with lemon sherbet and rhubarb mixed with caramel wafer biscuits and earl grey tea.
