Cask No. 30.77 Deep, rich & dried fruits

This is nuts!

sold out

We were greeted by a sweet and nutty aroma; toffee doughnuts, sticky toffee pudding, fruit and nut fudge and toasted tea cakes. Someone compared the initial taste neat to a bicycle puncture repair kit, but soon to be followed by a wonderful oily and waxy flavour of chocolate raisins, orange oil, marzipan, almonds and strawberry liqueur. With water the nutty notes are jumping out of the glass; Brazil, macadamia, pecan, walnut, hazelnut and dry roasted peanuts, but there is also a sweet and savoury note like oatcakes with liver pate on a raspberry coulis. The taste now dry, chalky and slightly salty with flavours of sour cream pretzels, plum chutney, malt vinegar and in the finish an old Amontillado Sherry.
