Cask No. 135.5
Intriguing? Captivating? Fascinating!
A warm, sweet, earthy aroma of quality potting soil using peat, bark and recycled mushroom compost was soon joined by the scent of a brand new Mackintosh raincoat and sweet gooseberry pickle – intriguing? It certainly intrigued us! To taste, like spicy savoury basmati rice with cloves, cinnamon, cardamom and curry powder as well as peas, sweetcorn and sliced almonds – captivating? When we added water we were brewing a Chinese chrysanthemum flower-based infused tea and drinking cactus juice liqueur (tequila, triple sec. and herbs) as well as kummel (liqueur flavoured with caraway seed, cumin and fennel) - fascinating!
