Cask No. 30.112   

Umami heaven!

Speyside, Spey

After we were all stunned by the deep amber colour an abundance of aroma descriptors followed; polished mahogany, marzipan, orange oil, cocoa roasted almonds, homemade strawberry liqueur and the list could go on. However, the palate was very different with a sweet and savoury note like a broth including caramelised vegetables and browned meat or a Japanese miso soup. Water added on the nose a brioche with sweet berries, hazelnut cream and dark chocolate, while on the palate very smooth unctuous texture like spaghetti with a Bolognese sauce and fresh Parmesan cheese grated on top – umami heaven!
