CHILDHOOD BAKING MEMORIES
Cask No. 80.47
A bourbon vanilla sweetness – combined with a lightly spiced pinewood aroma, the scent of a new marble slab and oak-aged matured pear schnapps – made this a pleasing and delightful offering. On the palate neat, we enjoyed a combination of highly flavoursome oak with vanilla and coconut cream, followed by a peppery, spicy kick in the finish.
This takes water well and, following reduction, we found crème caramel, shortbread, lemon tea biscuits and linden blossom essential oil on the nose. To taste, grapefruit came sprinkled with sea salt and crispy green apples which turned, with time, to become pineapple cubes, caramel hard candies and soft, sweet mints. *Giving Spirit bottle - 100% of our profits from the sales of this bottle will go to UNICEF Canada.
