Cask No. 3.237 Oily & coastal

Candle taking its last breath

sold out

A fairly robust nose, this one doesn’t hold back; oily smoky mackerels, treacle toffee, sherry soaked sultanas, banana bread, dark-fired tobacco, sticky barbecue ribs and salty pork scratching were just a few of the many descriptors given. Big on the palate – ‘this is a butcher’s barbecue’, fresh meat from the local butcher; pork sausages, beef burger, chicken drumsticks all with a tasty homemade marinade.  Adding water turns it into a Christmas cake trifle or a boozy crème brûlée as both having received a very liberal amount of sherry! In the taste, deep dark chocolate loaf with a sweet strong espresso at the finish.
