Cask No. 48.34 Young & spritely

In a sweetie shop

sold out

Clean and austere to start, soon giving way to a ‘sweetie-shop’ complex – candy cigarettes and Dolly Mixtures, Smarties (in their tube) and Toblerone, vanilla scented custard powder – and with water these scents are joined by creamy fudge, toffee popcorn and ‘empty foil crisp packet’. At full strength the taste is sweet and mouth drying, with fennel, even aniseed balls, and a hot and slightly bitter finish. Water is beneficial, softens the texture and increases the sweetness, but it retains a peppery kick in mid-palate, and an aftertaste of nougat and Tracker bar (cereal and nuts). This distillery on the Haughs of Cromdale, now also makes gin.
