Salsa verde

Cask No. 7.139

The nose neat started off extremely fresh and green; eucalyptus, mint, melon-cucumber smoothie and freshly mown grass, then it moved on to lime marmalade and quince jelly with lemon scented geranium leaves and finished with buttered croissants and strawberry jam. The palate combined all these aromas in a strawberry, basil and mint cocktail which whizzed through the mouth like a whirlwind. With water it became a lot more herbal, but still green like a crème de menthe or a mixed herb salsa verde. While in the finish, herbal and spicy flavours of thyme and cardamom with a good dose of cayenne pepper seasoning.
