DOWN THE OLD WAX MINES
Cask No. 77.57
On the nose – fudge, pecan pie, crème caramel, marzipan, set honey, rum-soaked raisins; waxed jackets, incense smoke, toasted oak, tobacco pouch, sweet mint. And here are some of our comments – Amazing. Fantastic. Deeply satisfying. Complex. Rewarding. Can’t put it down. Sweet treats. A sniffer’s dram. On the palate – dark Madeira honey cake, Jamaican truffles, Moroccan spice markets, buttered toast, marmalade, treacle, rich caramel, spiced almonds, maple syrup, ginger biscuits. Yet more comments – Forbidden pleasures. Manna from Heaven. A voyage of discovery. Sometimes being on the panel is not so bad!
