Cask No. 28.25 Spicy & dry

Sweet nutty personality

sold out

Many years in cask had given the nose linseed oil, linoleum, waxed canvas, new car, sandalwood and allotment shed characters – but the darling barley seed bestowed the creamy sweetness of crème Anglaise and choux pastry chocolate éclairs; watermelon and pear completed the picture. The neat palate supplied the typical sweet and nutty personality (the whisky, not the panel!) – Crunchy Nut cornflakes, peanut brittle ice-cream, hazelnuts, walnuts, muesli and digestive biscuits. With water, the nose found putty, macadamias, lemon curd and fruit cocktail, while the palate became much more honeyed and we liked it better. The distillery is in Blackford village.
