Cask No. 26.197  

Fisherman’s Friends on the beach

Highland, Northern

The nose finds syrupy flapjack sweetness, heady aromas of pressed flowers and dunnage warehouses, gentle woody spices (including Fisherman’s Friends) and lemon oil. The palate complies – shortbread and salted caramel, citric peel, apricot and physalis, fresh laundry, hibiscus tea and Victory V lozenges. Adding water brings apple notes and hints of mint to the nose, along with mineral suggestions of slate and rock-pools. The reduced palate is a delight – still mouth-coatingly waxy, now with real fruity intensity – peaches and cream, mango and monstera, some seaside holiday memories of sea breezes and ice-cream cones; then a finish of warm earthy spices.
