Cask No. 131.2 Deep, rich & dried fruits

Magic carpet in a sweetie shop

sold out

The nose was a visit to a candy shop – rhubarb and custard sweets, fruit salad chews, parma violets, sherbet straws, flying saucers and aniseed balls. The unreduced palate had a sweet, sticky intensity, containing cough syrup, peppermint, molasses, Garibaldi biscuits, orange, papaya, mango and dark summer fruits. Water did not diminish the personality at all – the nose now found dark chocolate, orange oil, caramelised brown sugar, figs, dates, burnt heather and a grandfather clock interior. The palate took us on a magic carpet ride from Morocco (spices, apricots, raisins, almonds) to Andalucía (sherry bodegas). From the ‘playing card’ distillery’s final year.
