Cask No. 134.2

Lip-smacking and cockle-warming

Goa, India

The initial nose is sweet (honey, custard donut, candy corn, caramel apple granny cake); then the wood influence comes – wooden cabinets, toasted coconut, dusty tobacco). The palate also has initial sweetness (pain au chocolat, chocolate raisins, brown sugar), followed by big woody spice (oak, anise, chilli, liquorice). The reduced nose continues that duality – sweetie necklaces, pears in honey and ginger cake against wooden shelves in a shoe shop and pipe racks. The reduced palate is similar, but somehow more integrated – Madeiran honey cake (bolo de mel), bourbon biscuits, Oddfellows, sweet chilli and muscovado on toasted staves – lip-smacking, tasty and cockle-warming.

Drinking tip: If you ever get tired of Scotch –no need to reach for vodka!
