Cask No. 42.73
FIRST APPEARANCE FROM THIS DISTILLERY FOR SMWS CANADA
We imagined harvest time in an apple orchard, wooden crates brimming with ripe apples, as we sat down for a rest to enjoy a toasted peanut butter and jam sandwich. It was sweet and spicy on the palate, with marmalade, apricot and orange chutney. Alongside we had a cask-strength oak-aged calvados with those typical lively citrus flavours, as well as nutmeg and vanilla.
With a drop of water, toffee, caramel and cocoa butter aromas emerged next to lime cordial and fruity pastilles. The taste was of strawberry yoghurt on oatcakes along with diced banana and sweet apple tart, with a pear caramel upside-down cake in the finish.
