Tasting Notes

Nose

Tropical fruit flavoured Germolene. Artificial strawberry flavour. Yacht varnish. A sweet floral note too. With water, cigarette ash and horses. Lemon and mothballs.

Palate

Antiseptic, ropey, then leathery. Some fruitiness tucked in somewhere.

Finish

Salted cashews rolled in cigarette ash.

Comment

Should have been taken out of the cask a few years back. Easy to say now of course.
