Cask No. 35.114 Spicy & sweet

A Southern gentleman

sold out

Mild nosefeel and quite closed to start, then presents ‘a box of After Eight mints’ with a shake of white pepper Soon there is a scent of Rye whiskey - coconut oil and linseed oil: oak lactones (for those who know!). The taste at full strength mirrors this: smooth, oaky, sweet and spicy in the finish – “bourbonesque’. It drinks well straight. Water advances the coconut theme – macaroons, toasted coconut, even Bounty Bar, but still with linseed oil and peppery wood spices. Soft and sweet and easy to drink; toasted marshmallows, warming syrup sponge. Much influenced by the American oak cask, but elegant: a southern gentleman in a white suit – and the initial mintiness even recalls mint juleps at the Kentucky Derby!
