Cask No. 54.40 Juicy, oak & vanilla

Carefree entertainment

sold out

The nose was clean and refreshing – fruit bars (strawberry, rhubarb, blackcurrant), Starburst and lemon candies – complicated by classroom memories of paper, pencil shavings and ink. The palate was tinned fruit cocktail (peach, pear, cherry and grape in syrup) plus fruit candies and slightly more penetrating crème de cassis – maybe a distant model shop; we found it frivolously entertaining, but not without weight. The reduced nose seemed more perfumed and more tropical – tinned lychees, blossom and a high class nail bar. The palate was now smooth as a perfect peach – waxy fruits and banana chips – creamy yet tangy, satisfying and cockle-warming.
