Spicy & sweet

Cask No. 39.139

A most luscious remedy

Speyside, Lossie

At first the panel found a fresh character of menthol, lemon sherbet, tonic water and After Eight mints with apple tart. Then came the richness of tobacco, prunes, spices, dark chocolate, raisons, vanilla and sweet Sherry notes. Remaining fizzy there was sweet pink wafer with cinder toffee and a herbal edge with dandelion and burdock before orange and blackberry fruit and a woody finish of furniture polish on charred oak. After maturing for 19 years in an ex-Oloroso butt it was transferred to a 1st fill ex-Pedro Ximinez butt for the remainder of its maturation.

Drinking tip: To be contemplated with little distractions and a lot of time.
