Cask No. 1.228 Juicy, oak & vanilla

VELVET UNDERGROUND

$151.99

A super sexy nose! Full of fruity bubble-gum, chalk, powdery fruit pastilles, pineapple cubes and many other tropical confections. Superb maturity for the age and dazzling fruit concentration. Reduction brings touches of juniper, sandalwood, scrunched newspaper and white jellybeans. Also, fruit salad juices, sweetened olive oil and passion flower.

The mouth is rich with lime leaf, freshly chopped herbs, cocktail bitter, touches of cough medicine, plain cornflakes and buttery, textural weight. Water brought out fruit teas, lemon balm, sweet fruit cordials, mixed herbs, brown toast and wintergreen. Superb!
