Cask No. 44.53 Spicy & sweet

Lip-smacking, chewy & chunky

sold out

The nose had many facets – sweet (chocolate chip cookies, crêpes with Nutella) savoury (maple-cured bacon, honey-glazed ham, rarebit, herby dumplings) floral (bluebells, lilac, rosewater syrup); also tobacco, fur coats, lemon and a new box of coloured crayons. The palate was quite impressive – lip-smacking, chewy and chunky with warm spice, gorse flowers, waxy lemons and perfumed smoke. The reduced nose added honey cake with caraway seeds, fresh sea air, sandstone and Brylcreem. Still very tasty with water, it suggested Kummel liqueur and pumpkin seed oil – sounds odd but we found it very agreeable. The distillery was long associated with White Horse.
