CASK No. 42.38

Oily & coastal

As pleased as punch

A clean refreshing sweetness, like the first warm day of the year over the machair or the first round on a links golf course – ‘spring has sprung, the grass is ris and I wonder where the birdies is?’ A sweet spicy heat was creeping up on us like hot wasabi and fiery Thai sriracha peas. In the finish however, milk chocolate with crunchy peppermint. When adding water, we arrived at the nineteenth hole and enjoyed a watermelon lime chiller with a liberal dash of rum overlooking the sea feeling ‘as pleased as punch’ and enjoying our well-deserved reward.
