Cask No. 41.52 Young & spritely

Boiled sweets & play-doh

sold out

This is remarkably mature for its age - easy drinking and accessible – although it comes from a distillery close to the Spey which produces a robust, meaty make. A clean, fresh aroma, with pineapple chunks, strawberry boiled sweets and Bakewell tarts (more almond than pastry); a smooth texture and more boiled sweets, cooling strawberry jam and berry fruits. With water it becomes more estery and ‘childish’ – Playdoh, sweet talc, wax crayons, bonbons dusted with icing sugar, strawberry vanilla ice-cream with caramel sauce. Soft and smooth in the mouth, and not as sweet as might be expected.
