Cask No. 30.106 Deep, rich & dried fruits

SUCCULENT, SCINTILLATING AND SUBSTANTIAL

$271.99

On the nose neat bags of prunes, figs and raisins, like a rich dark fruit cake with finely grated lemon and orange zest, plenty of brandy and/or dark rum. The taste, undiluted, was big, substantial and chewy - deeply caramelized burnt sugar toffee with chocolate and toasted walnuts.

When we added water the aroma of sweet succulent sultanas alternated with a slightly burnt spicy gingery note, whilst on the palate a fascinating/scintillating array of flavours like cinnamon, vanilla and eucalyptus, and in the never-ending finish chocolate covered Macadamia nuts. After 19 years in an ex-Oloroso butt we transferred this whisky into a 2nd fill PX butt.
