Cask No. 26.87 Light & delicate

Passion-fruit scented candles

sold out

Complex, warmly inviting – the nose enveloped us in fresh grass, sea breezes, lemon, honey, white pepper, rosewater, jasmine and ‘passion-fruit scented candles in a wooden box’. The immediate taste had sweet, waxy, lemony, citric flavours, but hot and slightly bitter too, like star-fruit sprinkled with chilli. The nose turned fruitier with water – stewed apple, candied fruits, boiled sweets and ‘banana in a raincoat pocket’. The reduced palate seemed sweeter, with candy canes, fruit syrup, lemon meringue and sweet coconut; still with its refreshing side – green twigs, lime and aniseed tingles in the finish. The distillery name means ‘sloped garden’.
