Cask No. B5.1

Sheer brilliance

Tennessee, USA

On the nose neat; rich oak, a fresh bunch of peony flowers, rose water, violet essence and perfectly ripe strawberry mascarpone tart with a Port glaze. Very smooth with an oily/silky mouthfeel and an explosion of flavours; glace cherries, marzipan, chocolate coconut and Turkish delight truffles. If you wish to add a drop of water, however, we almost refused to do so, you will not be disappointed as herbal aromas of steaming turmeric roasted sweet potatoes and macadamia soup appeared and on the palate, still very balanced, very classy just a little spicier maybe like mocha eclairs with cinnamon espresso crème anglaise.
