    Entitled ‘Double Cask’ because it’s made up of a combo of French oak and American ex-bourbon, this batch is made up of three barrels – namely TD0003, TD0037 & TD0285. I’ve already tried one Double Cask expression before and liked it a lot [WLP86].

    N: Perhaps even more exotic that the previous single bourbon cask. Initially, I get dried mace, cooked cooled & buttered basmati rice, flatbreads [chapati, barbari] distant lime pickles, a Martini with dried pomegranate seeds, celeriac, kohlrabi. Then again, back West, we can easily talk of Christmas spice-seasoned milky vanilla cream over short-crust mince pies. Going in deeper, I hit upon a papaya salad with a spoonful of Thai Green curry mixed with milky porridge covered over with a piece of thin pancake, oak-husky banana,… and on and on. Looks like we are playing home & away once again.

    T: All number of breads [not too refined, not too heavy, so artisanal/appealing], macadamia-buttered pancakes, a hint of poppy seeds, filo pastry,…

    F: There’s a congestion of sorts in comparison to the previous freer-flowing single bourbon cask. On some level, it’s as if the two casks [types] rub against one another as if to cancel each other out to a certain extent. More, a conflict of interest – quibbles though.

    C: I favour the single bourbon cask, but this double cask is a fabulous puzzle.
