Cask 28.50 Brazilian beach hammock sundowner
The nose was fresh as a scrubbed-up cherub – we were transported to a summer picnic– cut grass, lush green foliage, green apples and lemons, Vinho Verde, lilac blossoms and vanilla fudge. The palate had fabulous tongue-tingling zestiness – cart-loads of summer fruits – peach, nectarine, cherry, Pimm’s Cup and lemony chamomile tea on the lawn – complicated by sweet malty notes, cinnamon and eucalyptus. The reduced nose continued with floral and fruity perfumes – lemonade, ginger beer and mint tea by the lakeside – or a sundowner Caipirinha on a Brazilian beach hammock. The palate now found pineapple, sweet chilli, marzipan and a satsuma citric tang.
Cask 94.13 Follow the furry cheesemonger…
A surprisingly rich and emphatically dense aroma full of putty, clay, soot, wood embers, chalk dusters, heather flowers, old ink wells and malt extract. Wonderfully full and showing maturity beyond its years. With water we found old copper kettles, grass, nettle tea, rosehip, white rice miso and plain pistachios. Notes of lemon vitamin tablets in soda water and crushed oatcakes. The neat palate was wonderfully full in texture and elegantly drying. White stout ales mixed with butter biscuits, hibiscus, wintergreen, grassy olive oil and things like putty, wax jacket grease and mustard powder. Reduction brought earl grey tea, rich heather ales, hot cross buns, cinnamon boiled sweets, bitter herbs, aniseed and tasted fennel seed.
