This 16 year old Speysider was matured in a 1st fill barrel and is 58.4%.
Flavour profile: Sweet & spicy.
Outturn: 227 bottles.
Panel's tasting note: "Sweetness hits the nose first – honeyed Baklava, sponge toffee and rainbow drops; then comes tangerine, red apple, raspberry and cloudy lemonade, followed by spring flowers, laurel hedge and hints of pepper. The palate is also sweet (jellybeans, Battenberg cake), with some tangy orange zest and kiwi and a really spicy finish (pepper, chili chocolate, aniseed gobstoppers).
The reduced nose presents an even more attractive perfumed sweetness (petits fours, mango, melon balls), while the reduced palate has engaging sweet and spicy warmth – pastries and cakes straight from the oven; clove rock, ginger snaps and sugary espresso dregs."
Part of the SMWS August of 2019 'Hauf & Hauf' theme, this bottling was paired with a beer that was selected by Calgary SMWS member and beer writer Don Tse. Don chose the New Belgium Fat Tire Amber Ale to pair with this single cask, writing "The perfect balance of roasted malts and fruity hops will serve as a foundation to the diverse tapestry of flavours in this dram."
