THE EARLY BIRD GETS THE WORM
Cask No. 44.149
We all agreed in an instant - autumn leaves and bonfire followed by toffee apples and s’mores – such an evocative scent. The palate moved seamlessly on to pumpkin soup with a twist, some chilies to give it a zing as well as spiced rum-soaked grilled pineapple.
Water opened another chapter of this wonderfully complex dram(a) - fresh plums, dried cranberries, honey, burlap sacks and to top it all, dragon’s blood fragrance oil. To taste, truly scrumptious, a chocolate yule log sprinkled in ‘snowy’ coconut. After 5 years in an ex-Oloroso butt, we transferred this whisky into a 2nd fill Pedro Ximenez butt.
