Cask No. G10.17The Scotch Malt Whisky Society
Cask No. G10.17
A fruity medley of prunes, apricots, peaches and pears sweetened with muscovado sugar and deliciously warm cognac spiced with a little cinnamon. On the palate neat warm spices (cloves, star anise and allspice berries), like a steaming hot mulled wine but with a slightly medicinal, dry tannic finish. When we added a drop of water the aroma was that of walnut galette with Bourbon-vanilla custard sauce. To taste now like clove caramel mousse as well as a cup of pine needle and persimmon tree leaves tea. After eleven years in an ex-bourbon barrel we transferred this whisky into a 2nd fill coarse grain toasted French oak barrique.
