Cask No. 44.58 Sweet, fruity & mellow

A bittersweet sensation

sold out

All of us, well the not so young ones, were transported back in time to an old fashioned candy shop, wooden floor boards, saw dust and glass jars absolutely everywhere. There are so many aromas let’s mention a few; saltwater toffee, rhubarb and custard swirly lollies, apple and pear bonbons and strawberry chewits. The taste neat red berry jam, ripe Morello cherries and chocolate like Green & Black’s Dark Chocolate Cherry Bar. After a tiny splash of water initially quite dusty – opening a book after a very long time on the shelf, then sweet notes reappear quickly; fruity jelly beans, strawberry gelatine and Hubba Bubba chewing gum. An enticing fruity/sour combination with a creamy finish of rhubarb crumble and vanilla custard.
