[48.0%・NAS・Official Bottling・Single Cask Release]
More cotton candy than ginger, ginger flowers effortlessly relaxing in the background. Dried mango cubes and candy floss, hint of pepper and orange blossom, lighthearted but cute.
Palate & Finish:
Lemony and oozing of green apple sauce, together with the lime jelly it sets a refreshing summery tone. The ginger provides a wee kick to the proceedings but disperses swiftly thereafter.
Traces of cured ginger in the finish mellowed by simple syrup, a nice follow through.
For me personally, this is a great dram for those hot summery days, I reckon it will be very versatile as well, good for a highball I bet. This batch certainly feels more structured, a real testament to Starward’s maturing techniques.
