Notes

The aroma brought to the Panel's collective mind swimming pools, plasters, celery salt, kimchi and lime juice. A scented, elegant peat smoke with vivid coastal Atlantic freshness. Reduction brought sweeter cask tones such as custard and creme brûlée, along with metal polish, soft waxes, heather honey and sooty notes. The neat palate was soft and smoky, with notes of frying bacon in a cast iron skillet, bouquet garni herbs, salted almonds and gauze. Water brought sharp mineral notes of beach pebbles and bath salts, cured ham, leafy peat smoke, cut grass and coastal flowers. At six years of age we combined selected casks from the same distillery. We then returned the single malt into a variety of different casks to develop further. This is one of those casks.
