Cask No. 73.64 Deep, rich & dried fruits

Any time can be Christmas

sold out

Rich and mellow, with dried fruits (dates, figs, sultanas) and spices (cinnamon, ginger), Christmas cake, well anointed with sweet sherry and ginger wine. A voluptuous sweet taste at natural strength, with figs and dry chocolate; warming with a long finish. A drop of water continues the Christmas cake theme, with fruit-cake mix, icing sugar, candied peel (both orange and lemon) and the waxed paper wrap-around. The mouthfeel is very smooth, the taste sweet (but not cloying), slightly mouth-drying, with chocolate in the finish and hazelnut praline in the aftertaste. ‘It conjures sleigh-bells in the snow’ – whenever you like!
