Cask No. 73.53 Spicy & sweet

Springtime freshness; spicy warmth

sold out

We found pleasant springtime grassy, floral notes on the nose (elderflower) – then fruity (lemon, fruit bonbons, strawberry) ginger and white pepper spice and eventually buttery nutty notes (macadamia). The palate was sweet, chocolatey and creamy (chocolate éclairs) with custard, sugary lemon, some floral flavours and considerable spice warming the after-taste (chili, nippy pepper). The reduced nose developed deeper floral notes (lily of the valley) orchard fruits, lemon curd, pineapple and some washing powder or expensive fabric conditioner. The reduced palate was simple but nice – fresh (lemon sorbet) but with gentle ginger warmth following behind.
