Sweet, Fruity & Mellow

Cask No. 96.12  

Sweet lemons & sour grapes

Speyside, Deveron

We had a fascinating mix of unusual Middle Eastern aromas at first; Persian sweet lemons and unripe sour grapes called Ghooreh, beside more familiar notes of balsamic vinegar, honeycomb and orange blossom and a rose garden following the rain. The taste neat had the tangy, without being tart, sweetness of a rhubarb raspberry custard pie, Spanish membrillo paste (quince jelly) and green tea with sweet mint. Water released herbal, slightly sweet earthy notes of freshly crushed sugar cane and on the palate the fresh sweet minty flavour of peppermint creams, chocolate salted caramel ice cream and lychee & passion fruit panna cotta.
