CASK NO. GN3.14
A hymn to the god of summer refreshment
2nd fill ex-bourbon barrel
1 of 261 bottles
The neat nose suggests various things – the spritzy fruitfulness of lime chews, raspberryade and dried cranberries; fudge, toffee and icing sugar sweetness and aromatic hints of vanilla and cassia (Chinese cinnamon). A drop of water brings out even more refreshing fruits (melon, nectarine) all chopped up in syrup with cucumber and mint. The palate is a delightfully complex harmonisation of red cola, root beer and tree bark, juniper, coriander and clove, lavender and strawberry, but the main character is a punchy Sicilian lemon note that sings a solo hymn to whichever god provides us with much-needed summer refreshment.
