Man O' Words 2017 Founders Selection (ex-Burgundy STR)

Bottle size: 70
Sorry, this item is no longer available

Cask 302
Dist: 2017 Btl: ?
Tasted Jul 2022
The nose opens with the juicy, plummy red fruit and almost estery pineapple, peach and barley. Exuberant and evocative with hints of chocolate and herbal spirit. Good balance with a sort of Mackmyra-like feel.

The palate is soft and juicy with redcurrant/berry and soft chocolaty tannins which bitter a little on the middle. The STR cask is a touch more dominant (spice and tannin) but some barley notes come through. Masked, but the sweet and juicy red fruit returns along with some white fruit. Spicy and tannic after-taste.

Water brings out the barley on the nose and lessens the STR intensity. Sweeter, juicier, fruitier with apricot, banana and white fruits now appearing. The palate is still showing a fair amount of cask but the balance has improved. Sweet barley and herbal spirit character on the middle. Delicious, juicy, sweet red fruit, estery fruit and vanilla finish which lingers well.
