Cask No. 24.162

Dystopian deviant

Speyside, Spey

USA Exclusive Cask

We found this one to be extremely focussed on freshly baked brown breads, savoury pastries, meat pies, mutton stock, redcurrant gravy and toasted wood spices. Meaty, thick, unctuous and deeply alluring. Water turned it into hot Ribena! Then mad notes of mulled Buckfast, passion flowers, strawberry laces, mineral oils, hessian and thick, musty dunnage earthiness. The neat palate was rich with hardwood resins and an immense, assertive peppery spiciness. Smoked red chilli, paprika, damson chutney, iodine droplets, natural tar and bitter herbal medicines. Water brought thick stout beer, chilli-infused hot chocolate, charred herbs, BBQ embers, cloves and mustard seeds popping in hot oil. At 10 years of age, we combined selected oloroso butts from this distillery. We then returned the single malt into a variety of different casks to develop further. This is one of those casks.
