White mulled wine

Speyside, Spey

The nose neat produced plenty of sweet memories like cotton candy ice cream, strawberry and vanilla shortcake and honey-caramelised pears. There was a somewhat rude awakening on the palate with a surprisingly sweet and spicy heat followed by firm tannins in the finish. Let’s give it some water – and yes, we were back in dreamland! Rice pudding with cinnamon, star anise and mango as well as the aroma of dry roasted cassia bark giving us now a very different sensation when we tried it. Sweet, warm and cosy just like a white mulled wine with cinnamon, cloves, orange zest and a grating of fresh nutmeg.
