Cask-Aged Gin Batch 2 Bottling Note

When Professor Cornelius Ampleforth acquired some octave casks (only 50 litres capacity as opposed to the more usual 250 litre hogshead) what did he decide to do with them? Make cask-aged gin of course!

The professor filled the casks, which previously held either sherry or bourbon, with some of his small-batch Bathtub Gin, and left the spirit to mature for six months. Because the casks are smaller, there is a higher surface area to volume, which means the gin has far more contact with the wood.

This has imparted a well-integrated spiciness to the fine artisan spirit.

Packaged using brown paper, string and wax, the presentation puts us in mind of a Victorian apothecary!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: There's the same rich juniper notes as we saw with batch 1, but there's more in the way of soft caramelised orange here. It's very mellow, but with a depth of botanicals that draw you further and further in. Creamy soft butter and vanilla sweetness.

Palate: A velvety mouth feel, it rolls easily over the tongue with that wonderful creamy orange sweetness. Juniper and sugared peel roll in and fade out slowly into the finish.

Finish: Orange creams, with a smooth, long-lasting sweet softness in the mouth.

Overall: The cask ageing has added such smoothness and creaminess to this gin. It's wonderful stuff.

    WOW what a flavoursome Gin. Whether it was the hint of Vim from the bath-tub or the oak? cask we really enjoyed this unusual taste. Pity we can't afford a case of it.
