Cask No. 44.56 Juicy, oak & vanilla

Sweet and sour creative tension

sold out

The nose had heaps of honey, mounds of marshmallows and vast vanilla it also evoked summer barbecues (charred ribs, salad, lemon, balsamic, wood-sap, lawns) and a bookbinder's workshop (leather, paper, glue). The palate had sweet and sour creative tension – sweet vanilla, chocolate muffins, crème brûlée, dark toffee and fudge against stewed fruits, Haribo sours, orange and blueberry. We also found woody notes – oily pine and wood fire embers. The reduced nose offered millionaire’s shortbread, sweet pipe tobacco, shrubberies and a good blast of honeycomb; while balsa wood and clove joined the palate. This 1891 distillery was co-founded by ‘Restless Peter’.
