Cask No. 48.31 Old & dignified

Honey & flowers in a knicker drawer

sold out

The rich, rewarding nose delivered marzipan, caramel, chocolate digestives, Battenberg cake, honey and beeswax polish; someone detected floral incense, someone else a tin of Lakeland pencils and the Lady-poet was rummaging in her knicker drawer. The unreduced palate had velvety chocolate and Mayan cocoa – also buttered toast, caramel and salty toffee – then light, sweet smoke, woody notes, pepper and chilli. The reduced nose produced more cereal notes (honey nut clusters) syrup, bread dough and green leaves. The palate now had warm toffee flavours, buttered brioche, Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut and mild poppadom in the finish. The distillery is near Cromdale.
