Cask No. 115.11

Fresh and flirtatious

Speyside, Deveron

The nose is essentially fresh and flirtatious – lemon sherbet and lemon puff biscuits, grass and vanilla; deeper notes of fruit loaf and Eccles cakes lurk behind, but are eventually superseded by orange blossom, new oak and pine forests. The palate is a sweet, fruity, citrus zingy thing – lemon and lime sorbet, passion-fruit, orange jelly, fruit Mentos and blackcurrant Tunes; though the after-taste picks up a bit of leather, tobacco, cumin and coriander heat. The reduced nose – vanilla sarsaparilla, apple, pear and ripe blackcurrant. The palate – still fruity (apple pie, blackcurrant jam, gooseberry), but with cheeky pickled ginger and wasabi spiciness later.
