Cask No. G6.4    

A treasure chest of sweet delights


We sniffed – and were rewarded with a treasure chest of caramel cupcakes, Jaffa cakes, Gold Bars, Frosties, cinder toffee, lemon and orange blossom – also hints of polished pine. The palate was ‘light but right’ – banana toffee, pink wafers and buttery shortbread – we also picked up warming notes of ginger snaps and spiced bourbon punch. The nose became more delicate with water – maple syrup and Toffifees accompanied a picture of a vase of flowers on a varnished windowsill – a grassy flower-meadow outside. The reduced palate was sweet and easy-drinking, with white chocolate and ripe figs – an attractive dessert of a dram.
