Cask No. RW4.2

Second to none

Kentucky, USA

A cascade of descriptors which included banana bread, fudge, butterscotch, figs, bramble jam, brown sugar, gorse flowers, toasted oak and marmalade were mentioned on the nose neat. A dark juicy earthiness on the palate, flambéed pineapple rings, singed orange peel and toasted coconut panna cotta alongside a black cherry berry tea. Diluted like a warm prawn and seaweed salad, melted salted butter as well as maple-orange spice coated macadamia nuts. To taste at first cannelloni of gingerbread, kirsch mousse and cinnamon ice cream was followed by Seville oranges and cardamom Crème Brûlée and, in the never-ending finish, charred pepper, cloves and spearmint.
