Cask No. 39.151 Deep, rich & dried fruits

A Blue Lady and a Seraph's smile

sold out

The nose is smooth and indulgent – like being served Blue Lady tea* and After Eight mints on a polished mansion house table. With time fruits open up – tangerine, kumquat, peach schnapps, prunes and figs. The palate is mouth-filling, velvety, smile-inducing and sweet as a Seraph’s smile – maple syrup, moist brown sugar and rum and raisin fudge; then come hints of ginger, nutmeg and oak and some green apple and sherbet.

The reduced nose offers cinnamon swirls, marshmallows, sun-ripened sultanas and toffee pennies. The palate combines thick honey and fudge sweetness with melon, mango and sherbet dip-dabs; cinnamon and leather to finish. Previously matured in an ex-Oloroso butt. (*black tea flavoured with citrus and exotic flowers)
