CLEOPATRA MEETS ROBIN HOOD
This 12 year old Speysider was matured in a 1st fill barrel and comes in at 60.9%.
Flavour profile: Spicy & dry.
Outturn: 186 bottles.
Panel's tasting note: "For some the aroma awakened childhood memories: opening a pot of Cleopatra almond-scented glue for craft work or making a bow and arrow out of rosewood – I personally always had a hazel bow. The initial taste was peppery hot like chipotle chili powder, soon followed by a classic French beurre noisette, capers and griddled baby leeks as well as cinnamon almond butter. Water released an array of spices; cardamom, star anise and caraway before sweet notes of crème caramel and apple strudel with vanilla custard appeared and on the taste, salt and pepper ribs with a chili honey sauce."
Drinking tip: "Listening to 'Yesterday When I Was Young' by Glen Campbell"
