Cask No. 39.146 Spicy & sweet

Sangria in an artist's studio

sold out

Our noses found lots of herbal aromatics (liquorice, tarragon, cypress, snuff, rosemary and thyme) – we also got thick-set honey, scented leather and an artist’s studio (oil paints, canvas, turps). The palate gave us perfumed sweetness, intense acidic fruits (chutney, Sangria, balsamic strawberries) and considerable wood-spice heat.

Water brought more complexity to the nose – melon, mango and mimosa; coconut, marshmallow and sage, with hints of Chinese sweet and sour spare ribs. The palate was now succulent and sweet, with juicy pear, wine gums, syrupy fruity flapjack bars and chocolate ice-cream wafers. One of those drams that truly comes alive with water.
