Description

‘Mmm – funky!’ someone said – all cake shops and gardens on the nose; plus foamy bananas, jam and Chinese food on a Fablon-covered wooden table. The neat palate was feisty but complex, mouth-filling and well-textured, with flavours of marzipan, sweet chilli sauce, putty, liquorice and cinnamon leading to a teasingly playful, sherbety finish. The reduced nose had sherbet straws, white chocolate, an array of ripe fruits and camomile tea, with hints of PVC raincoats and photocopy paper. The reduced palate became mellower, but managed to retain some of its youthful exuberance – Blackpool rock, glazed ribs, liquorice stick and gentle spiced oak.

DRINKING TIP: Use this in a still-life arrangement on a Fablon table – paint it – drink the whisky and then paint it again.
