Cask No. 28.86
Initial comment was ‘this one has something to tell.’ Starting off with an antique wooden jewellery box then a Manhattan cocktail using sweet vermouth and angostura bitters garnished with orange peel and maraschino cherries before moving on to maple syrup, ripe strawberries and chocolate fondant pudding.
To taste, ‘Holy Moley’, sweet and spicy but at the same time thick and creamy. Flavours of ginger powder, damson jam and a rich chocolate and raspberry tart. With water like an erupting volcano releasing aromas of chocolate marshmallows, red currant coulis, fresh blood orange juice and crème anglaise and the taste - a truly remarkable experience.
