Cask No. RW4.1

Not to be missed

Kentucky, USA

The initial nose neat was like unwrapping cinnamon flavoured chewing gum which was followed by charred coconut flakes, buttered sweet popcorn and orange oil. On the palate a big slice of a sticky ginger cake with cranberry jam and a cup of bold brewed and stewed loose leaf Assam tea. Following dilution aromas of white pepper, caramel and oak spices emerged, while to taste a candied fruit Vollkornbrot (German for ‘whole grain bread’) with toasted nuts, chocolate chunks and, of course, candied fruits – deeply satisfying. Following three years in a charred virgin oak barrel we had to move the whiskey, since the cask was leaking, into yet another virgin oak charred barrel.
