Bags of cask character, and fine if you find finishes fun.
Signatory Straight from the Cask
Aged 11 Years, Straight from the Cask Madeira Finish
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Buttercups, grass, currants and Turkish Delight. Metal and bubblebath notes became more apparent with water.
Palate: Christmas cake, with raisins and glacé cherries.
Finish: A light meatiness, like baked gammon.
Comment: Bags of cask character, and fine if you find finishes fun.
Nose: Quite sweet. Barley sugar, then sultana/fruit loaf, hay, spices being sauteed in butter, crisp oak.
Palate: Medium-bodied and fairly intense, high concentration of sweet fruits, yet slightly firmer than you expect from the nose. Well balanced.
Finish: Fine length. Dried peels/fruits. Tingling.
Comment: Well balanced and with more weight and substance than you might normally expect from this distillery. A good dram.
