Cask No. 10.121 Sweet & spicy

ROMANTIC MOMENTS AT SUNSET

sold out

The initial nose was ‘all over the place’ – definite wood (sawn pine, balsa, star anise), undeniable sweetness (golden syrup, spun sugar) and some bitter salad suggestions. The palate had interesting perfumed notes and spicy heat, but the buttery fudge and cinnamon swirl sweetness helped it soar over any heat hurdles like a trim athlete.

Water gave the nose attractive jellied fruits, Havana cigars and a deep, heady ‘rose gardens at dusk’ floral delight. The reduced palate was mouth-tingling, delicious, sweet and floral - Turkish Delight, coffee, perfume and tobacco – like a summer evening with someone special in a Greek seaside taverna.
