Cask No. 66.184  

Smoked seaweed smoothie

Highland, Eastern

Imagine a fisherman in his favourite well-worn woolly jumper cooking pigeon breast in mead and smoked prune sauce! On the palate intensely spicy and orangey; maybe it was a French fisherman and it is ‘duck à l’orange’ he was preparing with red wine vinegar, Grand Marnier and orange bitters. When we added water, the gamey aroma was even more pronounced, like venison and wild boar while to taste a real transformation awaited us. Lovely mellow and sweet smoke as we were back by the sea with a smoked seaweed smoothie. After 11 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead we transferred this whisky into a second fill charred wine barrique.
