Cask No. 9.142 Sweet, fruity & mellow

GENTLE AND SOPHISTICATED

$249.99

A delicate, sweet, fruity and floral earthy aroma filled the air when we poured this sample. Descriptions of a bed of roses, cherry blossom orchard, herb garden and the sandy clay floor inside a sherry bodega made us all very much look forward to having a sip. 

A gentle vanilla buttercream and lemon curd beginning  became a teasing, lively, pleasant spicy tingle of fresh fruit (peaches and apricots) with fromage blanc and a spiced honey sauce. Add a drop of water, if you wish, and even more mellow on the nose as well as on the palate; violet and rose creams accompanied by a glass of demi-sec Champagne.
