WE HAVE YOUR WEEKEND DINNER PLANS SORTED!
Rascal's wine and beverage geeks have put together the following list of drinks for this week’s meal.
Each serving is 30ml
*Picked to also compliment this week's beer match, for the ultimate boilermaker pairing*
Limeburners sherry cask | 43% ABV | Single Cask M171
The Limeburners Sherry Cask is bottled from Barrel M171, earlier limited releases, only 356 bottles. Distilled at Great Southern in Albany from Western Australian barley. Matured in second fill ex Bourbon casks before finished in an ex Australian Apera cask. On the nose, salted caramel & poached fruit, beeswax & hint of seaweed.
On the palate, medium body with savoury, light tannic, poached cherry & dry goji berry sweetness.
For The Main Event
Dobson's Belle Epoque Cask Strength Single Malt | 60% ABV
Walnut fudge, mandarin peel and dark chocolate. The balance also impresses at high ABV. Initial barley is offset by prolonged bitter-sweetness, gaining ground at the finish with an intense peak of cream tea biscuits, orange peel, pipe tobacco, understated sooty/smokey notes and a warming, burnt orange aftertaste that goes on at length
Kirk & Sweeney 12-Year-Old Rum | 40% ABV
Their rum is aged in American oak barrels at the Bermudez’ family’s bodega, in the city of Santiago De Los Caballeros, Dominican Republic. Perfect clarity in the bright polished copper colour. Opens with aromas of crème caramel, dilute golden syrup with hints of brown sugar; aeration draws out dried grass and coconut adding freshness. Silky, semi sweet delivery features crème caramel, dried banana and vanilla rounded off with soft, purring spices. Shows moderate length. Versatile and well-balanced.
