Young & spritely

A washing day in Spring

Cask Type First Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel

The nose was clean and fresh as a Spring washing day – laundered sheets flapping on the line, daffodils and cut grass – lemon meringue pie, lemon and lime sorbet, Madeira cake and dry shavings of wood. All that citric freshness appeared on the palate – with good sweetness to balance (lemon drops, rhubarb rock, sponge cake, lime marmalade on toast); it also had lively wood spice heat and some zest and pith bitterness on the finish. The reduced nose stayed bright – lemon, honey and washing powder. The palate was young and vigorous, but full of taste – pineapple, oak and lemon-flavoured Fisherman’s Friends.

DRINKING TIP: While hanging out the clothes (or eating bread and honey – depending on your social status).
