WHEN FRUIT AND CREAM COLLIDE
Cask No. 88.24
The nose oozed and schmoozed with sweet vanilla cream, youthful Sauternes, crème caramel and then trampled ferns, mossy bark, white truffle oil and cookie dough. Hints of white chocolate mousse, mineral oil and new leather were also detected. With water we found fragrant sandalwood, tea tree oil, butter mints, leather gardening gloves and muesli run through with flower honey.
The palate neat was similarly sweet with pineapple syrup, precious nectars, pollens, melon cordial, lime curds, heather honey and candy floss. Some buttermilk and boiled lemon sweets too. Water brought out cream soda, rosewater, pineapple upside-down cake, sunflower oil and peach schnapps. Wee touches of Irish coffee, cinnamon sugar and a kiss of juniper in the aftertaste.
