Cask No. 93.72   

BBQ outside a sweetie factory


The nose evokes a sweetie factory, with all the machinery working – outside there is a barbeque with mackerel and chestnuts roasting; runny honey mixed with balsamic and heather burning in the distance. The palate is rather curious – sweet-cure herring and salt and chilli prawns, dried seaweed, light nut oil and liquorice Imps. The reduced nose conjures a beach bonfire with hickory smoke and tarry driftwood; peppered salami, treacle scones and burnt jam tarts (blackcurrant). The palate becomes sweeter – sugar-coated fennel seeds and Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory – also an apple wood fire cooking lobster and herb sausages – spearmint and ash to finish.

Drinking tip: Might go well with charcuterie or smoked fish.
