Elixir Distillers 10 Year Old Speyside Reserve Cask Parcel No. 4
A small batch bottling of three sherry butts from a mystery Speyside distillery. Distilled in 2010 and matured for ten years until 2020 before Elixir Distillers chose to bottle this parcel of casks at 48%
Nose : Rum-and-raisin ice cream, served with pecan pie and caramel brittle. Aromas of caramelised plums and freshly-baked redcurrant scones mingle with the freshness of crisp paper.
Palate : Cloves and mince pies, with a dusting of icing sugar, greet us on the palate. Boiled fruitcake, drizzled with acacia honey, fills the senses. This is then joined by dried cranberries and liquorice-and-mint tea.
Finish : Warming and sweetly intense: allspice, agave syrup and dates. Echoes of velvet falernum and almond extract rest at the back of the palate.
