Cask No. 96.24 Spicy & dry

SWEET, WARM AND LIVELY

$153.99

On the nose, initial candy sweetness (including apricot Danish, cherry fudge and bourbon biscuits) gives way to hay, dried flowers and basketry – eventually hints of tobacco. The neat palate has nutty sweetness (Cadbury’s Whole Nut, almond croissant) mouth-filling warmth (iced gingerbread, embers, chili) and a kind of popping candy fizz at the end.

The reduced nose finds Neapolitan ice-cream and Turkish Delight, but deepens and develops the tobacco, rye bread and aniseed notes. The palate is still sweet and warming – candied ginger, liquorice stick and dry leather with that lively finish turning to bitter lemon and classic champagne cocktail.
