Cask No. 132.6 Deep, rich & dried fruits

Night nurse nipped by piranhas

sold out

We found an amazingly complex nose – interesting sweetness (salted caramel, barley sugars, ginger snaps, melted chocolate) blended beautifully with laurel hedges, lacquered wood, dunnage warehouses, porridge, roasted hazelnuts, cherries and cigarette packets. The palate was drying, spicy, sweet and perfumed – we identified dark chocolate, fig rolls, clove, cinnamon and ginger spice, orange peel, Night Nurse cold medicine, tobacco, tonka beans and cooked ham – definitely interesting; we wanted more. The reduced nose was slightly more herbal (camomile, sage, eucalyptus) while the palate seemed sweeter, but still with miniscule piranhas of warm spice nipping at our tongues. The distillery is located in the Japanese Alps.
