Cask No. 10.183                         

Velociraptor vs Xenomorph


Please limit one (1) bottle per member

A wonderful mix of salted toffee, golden sultanas, orange muscat dessert wine and wee flickers of old school sherry. On the other hand, the coastal vigour of the distillate charges in the background with big, wind-whipped lashes of sea spray, wet beach sand and an invigorating shot of sherry vinegar! Water unleashes seaweed, fizzy surf gathering in rock pools and oysters dunked in bitter malt beer. Yet, the sherry resurges with caramel chocolate, full fat cream and a nutty amontillado richness.  The neat palate is rich with the funk of old bodegas! Mint choc chip, hessian cloth, chopped dates and salty old oloroso. Add to that liquorice, beach pebbles, chalk, heather and floral teas. Even something akin to raw, peppered mackerel. Water brings out citrus pith bitterness, lemon balm, menthol tobacco, iodine laced malt, miso broth, herbal tinctures and tiger balm! A monstrous battle between the seashore and the sherry cask with no clear victor!
