    CASK No. 41.101
    Deep, rich & dried fruits
    Hard to put down
    Price    £135.00 The nose is juicy and fruity – peach schnapps, prune and Armagnac tart, orange jelly, blackcurrant bush and a wee plug of tobacco. The palate displays succulent, perfumed fruits (cherry, blackcurrant), caramelised brown sugar, lemon peel and a mild but stimulating tongue agitation of oak and clove. Like a roller-coaster, the reduced nose now becomes calming – barley sugars, perfumed pear and Demerara; peach trees and flowers surrounding sun-drenched decking. The palate, decadent and decidedly drinkable, has cinnamon on roasted peaches and mandarins in syrup – hard to put down. After 27 years in ex-bourbon wood we transferred this into a first-fill PX hogshead.
