A hand Selected Single Cask Release. From Refill Hogshead No. 1741; Filled on 20th October 1978.
Rich Amber, Fine long beading.
Mellow; slow to develop yet evenly paced. Early notes of rich wine grow more creamy and fragrant. In time, fresher and sharper notes of tropical fruit emerge. Finally, autumnal and drying. Softer and sweeter with water, gingery and slightly peppery at first before vanilla fudge and nougat are matched by woody, floral notes of pine resin.
Medium to rich.
With its pleasingly creamy texture, easy to enjoy: sweet and warming, growing aromatic with notes of crème brûlée. Some spice. Reduced, still smooth and sweet overall, but now more delicate; mouth drying, cooling and sweet.
Medium to long, pleasingly sour and chewy with lingering, warming spice. Later, a black tea bitterness with a trace of ginger. With water, almost bracing with a memory of sweet cereal and hints of orange oil.
