Cask No. 12.39   

Sugared summer strawberries

Speyside, Lossie

We were all busy potting lemon cypress trees as this fresh lemony fragrance filled the room along with a sweet sprightly aroma of cotton candy and sugared summer strawberries. The taste neat had the sweetness of toffee and fudge followed by black peppercorns and fresh ginger and culminating in a very pleasant dry, slightly oaky finish. When we added water initially the aroma of palm tree sap appeared before warm rhubarb crumble with custard and hot peppermint tea took over and we reminisced on a childhood favourite no longer on the shelves, Campino yoghurt and fruit strawberry candy.
