Tasting Notes

Matured in Warehouse 14, Rack 21, Row K, the highest position, 50 feet from floor level. Distilled from Golden Promise barley, matured in refill American oak cask, bottled at 53.0%.

Light Gold/Soft Yellow.

Green apple, apricot, ripe bananas and pear drops.

Sweet oak and crunchy nutty malted barley. Throughout the soft floral notes of Mimosa, buttercup and Lily continue to rise and intermingle beautifully with the other flavours. Clean and fantastically fresh!

An educational cask, chosen from the hottest and driest part of the warehouse as a stand alone example to compare with a similar cask matured in the cooler more humid environment of the warehouse floor.

Inquisitive. Compare and contrast.
