Limeburners Port Cask Single Malt Whisky 43% ABV (50ml)
Spending the greater part of its 5 year life in a bourbon cask, this Limeburners expression is then finished in smaller Australian port casks which are responsible for the fruity lemon zest and rose wine colour.
NOSE A gentle, but powerful floral bouquet, focused on the port berries and rich pear. This is challenged with an out-of-nowhere spice; smoked paprika, liquorice and oak.
PALATE Malty, with a dry wine backbone. Sweet rich grain opens up, before being overtaken by a lemon zest and tart berry back bone.
FINISH Fleeting but pleasant, malty vanilla, honey and berry remains in your mouth. But the weight of each flavour teases constantly for you to need another sip.
