  • Intro:

    This is a collaboration selection done by a store and a society of a Compass Box marrying cask release. These are releases that take a Great King Street vatting and further mature it in another cask of one type or another. This was a sherried cask.

  • Nose:

    Pungent honey, rich toffee. Fresh baked bread. Faintly lactic. Apple cobbler, pears, rich dates and figs. Light sulfur. Really nice overall. Very rich.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel. Really subdued heat. Rich salted caramel, crme brulee. Cocoa, light salt and pepper. So very faintly smoky. Figs and stewed fruits. Vanilla cream.

  • Finish:

    Short to medium. Gingerbread, honey, toffee, vanilla bean, toffee and salted caramel.

  • Overall:

    This was really delightful. An incredibly solid selection. These marrying casks are really interesting and I find myself liking just about every one I try.

  • Score:
