AY CARAMBA, CARAMBOLA
Cask No. 113.58
We found the initial nose offered a wonderful balance of the savoury and the fruity with an impression of honey on freshly baked brown bread, before exotic fruit salad juices and sweetened olive oil. Some water unveiled mineral oils, canvas, exotic hardwood resins and mint leaf. The neat palate was pure tropical juice! Lots of mango puree, exotic citrus fruits, white rum esters and a strong impression of old style Irish whiskey - which we so often find with this make.
Reduction offered us dried mango, coconut shavings, pineapple juice and juicy fruit chewing gum with a drizzle of youthful dessert wines. Totally brilliant! Previously in a bourbon hogshead for 17 years before transfer to a 1st fill ex-Sauternes barrique.
