Cask No. 54.58 Spicy & dry

GLOWING EMBERS OF SATISFACTION

$168.99

A fruity, aromatic nose of apricot Danish, orange sherbet and trail mix (dried pineapple, papaya, banana and coconut, with plump sultanas); subtle hints of pipe tobacco in a leather pouch. The palate achieved a balance between sweet, rich and buttery (Eccles cakes, bread and butter pudding) and drying spice (ginger cake, sugar-coated fennel seeds, curried raisins).

The reduced nose was juicy and appealing – dragon fruit, manuka honey and pineapple. The palate – toffee apple, ripe peach and raspberry brownie, leaving glowing embers of satisfying spice in the mouth afterwards. Transferred after 14 years in ex-bourbon wood into a first-fill red wine barrique.
