Cask No. 64.97 Juicy, oak & vanilla

A SUNNY DAY IN LATE SUMMER

$134.99

We found the nose immediately attractive – dark polished wood, dried flowers and a late summer impression of meadows and orchard fruits (pear, peach, russet apple). The palate had juicy fruits (pear-drops, strawberry, stewed rhubarb), chocolate and marzipan confectionery, with the finish nodding in a pink peppercorn and tobacco direction. The reduced nose seemed even brighter – a sunny day with freshly-laundered linen on the washing line, blackcurrant, Key lime pie and lemon posset.

The reduced palate was simply sweet, juicy and lip-smacking, with rainbow drops, lime marmalade, orange Creamola Foam* and subtle hints of liquorice and tobacco – very easy-drinking for its age. (* fruity soft drink manufactured in Scotland from the 1950’s to the ‘90’s. Sold in tins of soluble crystals which you had to mix with water.)
