Situation: At the Bon Accord
Nose: honey, flowery, vanilla custard, cinnamon,
Taste: honey sweet entry, waxy mouthfeel, baking spices, salt, vanilla, oranges, cinnamon,
Finish: bright wood, vanilla, flowery honey, a bit salt, baking spice
Conclusion: A quite nice dram, but I have to confess that I was more focused on the company. So take my notes with what ever amount of salt suits you. Never would have guessed it’s an ex Redwine cask though!
