Cask No. 9.63 Young & spritely

Flowers on the breakfast table

sold out

The classic ex-bourbon nose gave sticky toffee pudding, sherbet lemons, flowers, pineapple, popcorn, coconut, pistachios, sultanas and bread and butter pudding. The palate was mouth-watering and well-rounded, with flavours of cedar, exotic fruits, mint sprigs and intense floral notes (‘like munching flowers from a vase’) - then peach stones and plum skins in the after-taste. The reduced nose had more cereal – Alpen with dried fruits and brown sugar, Weetabix with honey; waxed furniture, rose, mango, orange and peach. The reduced palate was complex and refreshing—juicy raisins, Turkish delight (rose and lemon), white pepper and Nuttal’s Mintoes. From Rothes’ oldest distillery.
