Cask No. 1.168 Old & dignified

Delightfully dulcet deliciosity

sold out

Following a scant scintilla of paint, the nose became a profusion of tropical fruits (banana, mango, piña colada, plum, orange) with dark chocolate-covered raisins, toffee, Demerara, Jamaican ginger cake and deep woody resonances (dunnage, polished furniture, tea chests, autumn leaves). The palate was a delightfully dulcet deliciosity with wow-ously warming woody spices – we tasted dried cranberries, peach stone, roast pumpkin, IRN-BRU, carrot cake and teasingly tannic after-tingles of walnut, leather and wood. The reduced nose had us imagining an after-hunt dram in a stately home, while the palate discovered star-fruit, grapefruit and gummi bears. From a family-owned distillery near Marypark.
