Cask No. 72.57
A sweet citric aroma of freshly squeezed lemon sprinkled on pancakes covered in sugar and cinnamon was followed by rhubarb and ginger syllabub and the fresh scent of slices of juicy pear. The taste neat had plenty of chili heat at the beginning but then offered a balance of zesty orange marzipan and juicy fruit-flavoured wine gums.
With the addition of water, Limoncello-mint sorbet and fresh blackberries on the nose whilst the palate certainly benefitted from the dilution with a sweet creamy, now slightly spicy, mouthfeel of coconut rice pudding with cardamom spiced honey pears.
