Cask No. 7.97 Juicy, oak & vanilla

Cedar, sandalwood and cinnamon

sold out

We found rich aromas of dark honey, vanilla, coconut, chocolate, menthol, abundant leather and the deep woodiness of a cooperage, but somehow the nose also drifted towards tropical fruits and garden impressions with fresh flowers and herbs. The neat palate tingled the tongue nicely with leather, orange zest, wood, green herbs and aniseed and ginger spice โ€“ sweet tobacco and floral perfumes kicked in to create a wonderfully balanced and rather sexy experience. Water brought cedar, sandalwood, cinnamon and candy floss to the nose and pleasant pot-pourri perfumes to the palate. An attractive offering from this Chivas distillery south of Elgin.
