CASK NO. 18.36
Depth of flavour
2st fill shaved, charred & re-toasted barrique
1 of 236 bottles
A roasty, malty and creamy aroma of cherry scones mingled with the scent of oaky vanilla sweetness from white chocolate, hazelnut and nutmeg tiramisu. Our taste buds were left intrigued by the contrast of salt and sweet as well as a hint of bitterness just like when sea salt is added to very dark chocolate. After dilution, we marinated a shark steak with soy sauce and prepared red onions roasted with balsamic and honey while on the palate sinfully sweet and succulent soft dough balls smothered in a sugar syrup called Gulab Jamun. After eleven years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a second fill shave, toasted and re-charred barrique.
