CASK No. 73.78

Young & spritely

Zingy, effervescent and intriguing

Age 14 Years
Date Distilled 24th September 2001
Cask Type Refill Ex-Bourbon Butt
Region Speyside Deveron
Outturn 1 of 528 bottles
ABV 57.6 %
Colour Varnished pine


The nose – zingy, effervescent and intriguing – had melon, grape and raspberry prosecco, plus occasional touches of polished wood. The palate offered lively bramble, blackcurrant and salted pineapple, then toffee apple, cinnamon Danish and Walnut Whip sweetness, all finely balanced by cask-derived flavours of liquorice, nutmeg and clove. The reduced nose combined runny honey and chocolate mint cracknel with toasted coconut and a jenga tower of fresh staves. Eminently drinkable, the palate now gave us lip-smacking ice-lolly and raisiny sweetness over a pleasantly tingling, spicy, oaky under-structure. A lively, clean, spicy fruit symphony.

DRINKING TIP: A summery, uplifting dram.
