Cask No. 10.116                         

Flaming orange twist


Thick perfumed smoke on the nose neat; sweet smoked spare ribs with chilli powder, paprika and ground cumin as well as, right out of the bartender’s bag of tricks, a flamed orange twist for an Old Fashioned cocktail. On the palate; plenty of salty peat smoke, sweet char and extra strong mints make this a real bruiser - let’s see if we can rein it in with water. A nutty sweetness of honey roasted almonds came to the fore followed by pan-fried scallops with lime and coriander and the taste changed dramatically; juicy, sweet, charred and fragrant like barbequed sea bass in banana leaves with grilled pineapple salsa.
