Cask No. 44.134
A soft sweet aroma greeted the Panel at first reminding us of mixed mini jelly fruit slices and marzipan combined with the freshness of crème de menthe Turkish Delight. Neat we had a sweet chili peppery heat on the palate like a chili chocolate cupcake with a peppermint frosting.
Water added marshmallow fluff, strawberry and vanilla ice cream and orange-spiced cranberry sauce on the nose, whilst to taste, now cinnamon and apple hot cross buns with a marzipan centre. After 16 years in a 2nd fill bourbon hogshead we transferred this whisky directly into a 1st fill charred ex-red wine hogshead for the remainder of its maturation.
