DOWN THE OLD WAX MINES
Cask No. 77.57
Sweetness hits the nose first – honeyed Baklava, puff candy and rainbow drops; then comes tangerine, red apple, raspberry and cloudy lemonade, followed by spring flowers, laurel hedge and hints of pepper. The palate is also sweet (jelly beans, Battenberg cake), with some tangy orange zest and kiwi and a really spicy finish (pepper, chili chocolate, aniseed gobstoppers).
The reduced nose presents an even more attractive perfumed sweetness (petit fours, mango, melon balls, mint), while the reduced palate has engaging sweet and spicy warmth – pastries and cakes straight from the oven; clove rock, ginger snaps and sugary espresso dregs.
BEER PAIRING: NEW BELGIUM FAT TIRE AMBER ALE - The perfect balance of roasted malts and fruity hops will serve as foundation to the diverse tapestry of flavours in this dram.
