Tasting Notes

The aroma sent us into orbit with green asteroid belts (fizzy apple laces), strawberry stars and heavenly chantilly cream. The taste then brought us back to earth with classic chelsea buns, cinnamon candied almonds and hot spiced mulled cider. After reduction we made rose cardamom burfi and pongal (Sri Lanka’s version of rice pudding made with jaggery). On the palate, we tucked into lavender honey ice cream, pecan pie with maple cream and, in the finish, a ruby red grapefruit marmalade. The starting point for this small batch was two bourbon hogsheads of single malt Scotch whisky. Both casks were transferred at 13 years old to first fill American oak PX hogsheads. The casks were then married together before bottling.
