Cask No. 71.68 Light & delicate

JUICY FRUIT MEETS BIG RED

$115.99

An amazing dram for its age. It filled our nostrils with fruity, citric, floral notes – apple turnover, tutti-frutti ice cream, lemon cake, elderflower and fruit Mentos – we also got fresh-cut wood, but it was mainly perfumed and attractive. The palate was fruity and exotic:  peach, nectarine, caramelized pineapple, fruit gums and pears cooked in honey with clove and cinnamon – the finish also warmed up with pepper and liquorice lozenges.

The reduced nose – Jelly Babies, sherbet straws, pear flan and fudge with cherry pieces. The palate now wowed us with rhubarb and custard sweets, chewing pineapple ice-lolly sticks, Juicy Fruit and Big Red.
