Cask No. 1.236     

It shines

Speyside, Spey

This was proper Perry, bottle-fermented Perry, a delicate sweetness with tropical fruit aromas of guava and pineapple as well as a hint of citrus – Napoleon allegedly described it as “English champagne”. Talking of sparkling on the palate like a Moselle kir royale, dry sparkling Riesling wine mixed with red Moselle vineyard peach liqueur. With a drop of water, we added the liqueur to spicy chutney or caramelised it until crispy on top of a panna cotta. To taste remarkably fresh and fruity, somewhat sharp but with the sweet magic of pink chocolate truffles with milk chocolate, butter and Marc de Champagne centre.
