Initial nosing suggested to us the cask was slightly more dominant in this instance. Some lovely and cosy notes of banana syrup, warm fudge, toffee apples and new shoe leather were detected initially. Then meadow flowers heavy with pollen and fruity shilling beers. Reduction brought out pear drops, lychee sorbet, barley water and hessian cloth. The neat palate displayed rhubarb rock, lemon sherbet, banana bread and softer herbal and peppery tones that became more mentholated with time. Some water made things more direct and classically on vanilla custard, shortbread, lemon cough drops and olive oil.
