Our young & spritely chap has plenty of youthful energy to play a game of catch with his old & dignified partner. Cask 2.96 Seriously spicy Paloma cocktail winds up with loads of tropical fruit before delivering a sweet and mostly spicy strike. The lovely sting of citrus and pepper lingers after the catch. Now, Cask 35.177 Caramelised fruit and nut medley shows how age can improve form. A fluid motion of caramelized fruit, vanilla ice cream with orange liqueur and toasted almonds sings in the air. This beautiful ball of flavour lands seamlessly, offering chocolate, caramel and nuts in a silky delivery. Playing catch with these two is an afternoon well spent!
