CASK No. 71.48

Sweet, fruity & mellow

Follow the yellow brick road

Cask Type Refill Ex-Bourbon Barrel

We declared this rather mellow for its age – and yellow on the nose – honeydew melon, yellow apple, mango, marigolds, nasturtiums and mead. To taste, it was salivatory and tropical – maybe a little woody mouth pucker, but mainly sweet and fruity – kiwi, custard apple, ripe gooseberry and tarte au citron – altogether an opulent experience. It wasn’t hard to follow the yellow brick road on the reduced nose - yellow roses, apricots, chocolate-coated foamy bananas, Madeira sponge cake and camomile tea. The palate was now an easy-pleasey delight, delivering sweet cakes and pastries, some of which incorporated dark chocolate, coconut and pineapple.
