CASK No. 123.23

Spicy & sweet

Teasing interplay

Age 9 Years
Date Distilled 29th August 2008
Cask Type First Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel
Region Highland
Outturn 1 of 216 bottles
ABV 62.1%


An inviting nose neat with sweetish-malty, slightly roasted aromas of coffee beans is followed by chocolate, hazelnut and vanilla. Add a sprinkle of chopped coriander, a squeeze of lime juice, cinnamon and nutmeg and this is a fascinating concoction. The taste is an almost perfect balance between sweet dark fruits (blackberries and blackcurrant) and a malty body, with spicy floral hops and a slightly citrus/caramel finish. Water adds aromas of caramel, butterscotch, vanilla custard and a hint of oak, while on the palate there's a delightful teasing interplay between chocolate-dipped coconut macaroons and tongue-tingling ground cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice.
