Cask No. 44.55 Old & dignified

Afternoon tea at Fortnum & Mason

sold out

To start the nose neat is a new solid pine chest of drawers with embossed leather inlays and treated with an earthy tobacco finish, followed by less exotic aromas of pineapple with gammon, lemon grass, salted lime, geranium leaves, tomato vines as well as tomato crisps. On the taste surprisingly fresh wood smoke then scones, clotted cream and strawberries with balsamic vinegar and basil mint syrup. With water the aromas turn it into a Swedish knackebrod or a tea loaf with sultanas and caraway. To taste, sweet like a cream tea and well done toasted crumpets with salted butter. The name of the distillery is pronounced ‘Krai-GELLachy’ which means ‘rocky hill’.
