    N: A sweeter number by comparison to the previous bourbon cask, though with lighter bubblegum notes than a previously tried ex-red wine re-char quarter cask sample #508 [WLP] – a sample which proved most popular at the time. Whilst looking for quince jelly – none to be found – there’s plenty of vanilla ice cream and something of light butterscotch Angel Delight and/or tutti-frutti, but we’re talking a more vegetal than sugary sweetness, slightly calvados-like too, and bready once again. I really like the toasted brioche-like breadiness going on here.

    T: Another swimmer [thank goodness], as this has more of a resinous edge than the [black] pepperiness of the bourbon cask. Fairly non-descript in the middle stages,…

    F: ,…. and very soon we swoosh into the finish with a restrained if ever-giving vanilla tutti-fruity note, a persistent clove-like heat, and bready-citrus savoury sourness.

    C: No doubt, ex-red wine casks will play a pivotal role in future Lindores releases.

    Something different, but the cask influence is overpowering
