Cask No. G4.18
The paradise patisserie
Specially selected by Society founder Pip Hills for exhibiting superb complexity and distillery character.
A magnificent mix of tropical fruits and jelly sweets combined with desiccated coconut to produce a picture of paradise. Just as we were settling into papaya with a squeeze of lime juice we discovered an array of sweet treats that delivered vanilla sponge cake with creme brulee and milk chocolate. Sweet cereal notes morphed into popcorn and caramel whilst the palate carried a hint of tomato plants and a cooling breeze in the form of peppermint and menthol. A wedge of ginger cake with custard came served with a glass of rose tea and sticky Turkish delights before the finish combined balsa wood and cooking chocolate in perfect harmony.
