Cask Innovation (Premium) – Malt Maniacs Awards 2011
NOSE: A Thick pudding of a nose; fruit and caramel have merged into one slightly over-oaked soup; burnt apple pie.
PALATE: This is essentially a port pipe sandwich.... and it shows. The spicy, jammy fruit is interwoven through any amount of caramel while the oaky saltiness gets the taste buds both salivating and puckering until you run dry.
FINISH: Long, massive oak with quite evident traces of the virgin barrels now detectable. And more of a cocoa hue as it progresses. At last some muscovado sugars arrive to supplant the berry fruits.
