Cask No. 41.147   

Brooding armchair dram

Speyside, Spey

The initial comment was “this appears to be a brooding dram’, with aromas of treacle, blackcurrant liquorice, and hoisin sauce but there was also a sweeter side to it with dates, raisins and cinnamon toast. On the palate the toast was spread with spice-infused cherry preserve including cinnamon and cloves as well as dry red wine. After reduction we sat in our favourite armchairs, next to us a round side table made from hazelnut wood and on top a leather-bound antique book. To taste we enjoyed cinnamon muffins with an espresso. Following thirteen years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a 2nd fill American oak PX hogshead.
