Cask No. 121.88 Juicy, oak & vanilla

Licking the wooden spoon

sold out

Enticing, inviting, warm, rich and like ‘walking barefoot on hot sand’ were the initial comments nosing neat. Descriptors given; hot crumpets with runny honey, waffles with golden syrup and buttered popcorn. The taste had the rich sweetness of a chocolate éclair sprinkled with nutmeg whilst in the finish, surprisingly dry. Water added aromas of wood and spice, a well-used wooden rolling pin as well as warm hot cross buns with a slightly waxy mouthfeel of a chamois leather cloth. The overall effect is now charming, innocent and very inviting –don’t we all like licking the wooden spoon after making cakes?
