A FRUITY FOOL
This 15 year old Highlander was matured in a 1st fill hogshead and comes in at 52.4%.
Flavour profile: Sweet, fruity & mellow.
Outturn: 263 bottles.
Panel's tasting note: "A warm invitingly sweet aroma of banana bread cake with butterscotch icing was followed by vanilla scones with strawberry cream as well as blackcurrant jam and red fruit coulis. On the palate neat, gooseberry yoghurt fool and mint chocolate chip cookies as well as orange and Earl Grey iced tea with mint syrup.
With water initially a whiff of linseed oil and new glossy magazines soon superseded by German cinnamon star cookies (Zimtsterne) and banana pancakes with hazelnut mascarpone cream. To taste, sweet and creamy like Portuguese custard tarts (Pastel de nata) or crème caramel with Marsala-baked pears."
