WHEN FRUIT AND CREAM COLLIDE
Cask No. 88.24
The nose opens with buttery shortbread, soft cereals, cake dough and freshly baked chocolate croissants. Add to that whipped cream, bailed hay, straw mats, canola oil, shoe polish and mandarin liqueur. With a splash of water out comes green tea, elegant burlap notes, honey melon, heather flowers, honeysuckle, pollen, citrus infused mineral water and rum-soaked toffee sponge.
The palate at full strength offers cooking oils, barley sugars, caramelized figs, milk bottle candies softened in a warm pocket, sultanas in muesli and yeast extracts. With water there are lovely subtle notes of mint tea, clove oil, white asparagus, pear drops, cotton candy, tree bark, apple sauce and eucalyptus tobacco. Some orange vitamin tablets fizz in the finish.
