Cask No. 72.31 Old & dignified

Something old, something new

sold out

The Panel was greeted with a lot of ‘new’ aromas; the inside of a new car, new leather and a newly varnished wooden floor. With time deeper and ‘older’ notes appear; like a very old dusty leather bound library book in a new shiny cover. It does not stop there - tobacco leaves, caramelized apples, brandy butter and waxy lavender candles are also mentioned. The taste has an enticing combination of wood, nuts and spices; ginger, cardamom and paprika powder. With water oily like hazelnut syrup lacing a coffee as well as almonds, figs and dried cherries. The taste now sweet and juicy like a mango smoothie or an apricot frangipane tart. The never ending finish is that of a Peshwari naan bread with mango chutney.
