Cask No. 72.67 Sweet, fruity & mellow

DAFFODILS CAPTURED IN HONEY

$133.99

A gentle nose, slowly opening from grassy meadows and hay fields to vanilla ice-cream, pears or apple strudel in  custard and marshmallow tea-cakes; also wicker baskets and pencil boxes. The smooth, silky palate combines mellow fruitiness (orange, tutti- frutti, strawberries) with sweet things (glazed donuts, candy floss, chocolate-coated raisins) and flickering twinkles of liquorice, pepper and wood on the finish.

The reduced nose – elegant and easy-going – a polished wooden counter in an ice-cream parlour; honey with a memory of sun on daffodils. The palate now much more balanced and integrated – still syrupy, but with hints of  citrus and warming spice to complicate it.
