Cask No. 113.39

Frivolous and fun 

Speyside, Spey

Light, spiky and green notes like nettle leaves or gooseberries before a sweeter aroma of vanilla custard, toffee apples and freshly pressed sugar cane juice appeared. On the palate neat plenty of grainy, malty cereal notes with mandarin orange slices and pine nuts while a gingery heat lingered in the finish. With water a lot sweeter like caramel ice cream or creamy, fruity Swiss Bircher muesli made with banana oatmeal and then to taste, silky soft and sweet but still with that little zing of spiced apple juice with cinnamon and nutmeg served cold in a frosty glass.
