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.
Pungent honey, rich toffee. Fresh baked bread. Faintly lactic. Apple cobbler, pears, rich dates and figs. Light sulfur. Really nice overall. Very rich.
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.
Short to medium. Gingerbread, honey, toffee, vanilla bean, toffee and salted caramel.
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.
