Cask No. 88.28
The panel found a warm and inviting nose that expressed toasted coconut, cask char and a playful note of pocket-warmed soft mints. We also noted coconut milk, gorse flower and a stodgy lump of oatmeal flapjack. Water brought out freshly varnished oak, satsumas, wintergreen and herbal teas. A kiss of menthol tobacco beneath!
In the mouth we got mini milk ice lollies, dried pineapple slices and a touch of aniseed distillate. Beyond that some custard cream biscuits and a gentler note of chamomile tea. Water revealed cherry lip balm, sour apple liqueur, peppery watercress and things like sandalwood, muddled mint leaves and white pepper.
