Cask No. 48.67 Juicy, oak & vanilla

Godzilla vanilla

sold out

The nose set the tone – a triumphant triumvirate of fruit (orange, mango, pear, peach, strawberries), sweetness (chocolate, caramelized sugar) and cask-wood influence (oak, turmeric, pepper). The palate followed through – mouth-watering tropical fruits, including apricots and banana smoothie got our taste-buds doing the tarantella and the cask supplied nutmeg and vanilla – not just a scintilla of vanilla but enough to fill a villa. Similar story on the reduced nose –  honey flirted with passion-fruit and minty mojitos – a bitter-sweet romance, while oak stung the tongue with Japanese mustard. The reduced palate – pineapple, kiwi, toffee apple and lemon with full-on bourbon spice – proper lush!
