CASK NO. 9.174
Strawberry jalapeno ice cream
1st fill charred ex-red wine barrique
1 of 270 bottles
The aroma reminded one of us of cooking a venison steak in a red wine chocolate sauce whilst another would enjoy it watching an intense rugby match between Bordeaux and the Glasgow Warriors. To taste, we were all at the after-game party with plenty of well-aged Lambic wheat beer (having lost some of its sourness and acquired a vinous bittersweet flavour with dark fruits in the background). Diluted we ordered ginger beer ice cream floats and had no churn strawberry jalapeno ice cream; sweet, spicy matched by a cool creaminess. After 13 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead we transferred this whisky into a 1st fill charred red wine barrique.
