Cask No. R13.1 

Deep, dark and brooding


Single cask from a closed distillery!

A deep brooding colour was followed by ‘dark aromas’ – treacle, tar, soot, black olives, damson jam, Demerara sugar and black pepper. Big, funky and delightful on the palate neat – BBQ beef ribs with black garlic and chilli accompanied by roasted artichokes prepared with salt and pepper, garlic cloves and plenty of olive oil as well as heavily BBQ-seasoned bacon-wrapped shrimps. When we added water, sea salted dark chocolate at first before roasted chestnuts, hot engine oil and blackstrap molasses in hot milk appeared. The taste had a bit of everything now; antiseptic, seaweed, sultanas, fruit marmalade and in the finish, a strong sweet Turkish coffee.
