CASK No. 54.72

Young and Spritely

Sweet as the cup of Circe

Age 12 Years
Date Distilled 5th May 2006
Cask Type Refill barrel
Region Speyside
Outturn 1 of 221 bottles
ABV 57.8%


The nose is daisy fresh and starlight bright – some lively sherbet and Sprite notes but mainly afternoon tea in a summer garden (flowers, French Fancies, vanilla sponge and citronella oil).  The initial taste is ultra sweet – jelly beans and pear jam, but the finish has warm tingles of stem ginger, black pepper and chilli. The reduced nose introduces Zen and the art of flat-pack furniture, three fruit marmalade, blackcurrant and apple crumble and hints of Imperial Leather. The reduced palate is as sweet and seductive as the cup of Circe – but leaves dry oak, leather and rhubarb and ginger warmth behind.
