Cask 202 – 43%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Cassis, cherries, orange zest, fudge, hints of sage and pepper.
Palate: Dried apricots, sweet cherries, orange zest, butterscotch, hints of mixed savoury herbs.
Finish: Long, fruity, dry and slightly spicy.
Overall: This is not immediately recognizable as a port cask, and the light savoury element gives it a special touch. Very nice indeed.
Rating: 86/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
