Cask No. G6.9   

Listening to the frog chorus


Please limit one bottle per member

We were fermenting strawberries with vanilla beans, orange peel, almond extract, fresh mint leaves and not to forget plenty (and we mean plenty!) of Spanish-style rum from the likes of Panama or Venezuela. On the palate neat, simple but delicious like moist banana bread drizzled with a warm salted caramel sauce. We were careful when adding water but wow! Imagine sitting in a mahogany and cane deck-chair on the porch of a plantation house listening to the relaxing evening chorus of the whistling frogs. After 36 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead we transferred this whisky into a 2nd fill toasted oak hogshead.
