Cask No. 54.74 


Speyside, Spey

We felt we had been transported into the kitchen of a monastery with Carthusian monks making Chartreuse pancakes – the ingredients: flour, eggs, lemon juice, butter, beer (no surprise there) and, of course, plenty of green Chartreuse liqueur. Sweet and creamy on the palate neat like a French pear and almond puff tart with a sprinkling of ginger, cinnamon and demerara sugar. With a tiny drop of water a rhubarb crumble next to a watermelon salad topped with balsamic vinegar, whilst to taste fresh, sweet and creamy – vanilla, menthol and cherry fruit sweets and wait for the finish, like an authentic buttery French brioche loaf.
