Cask No. 53.159 Peated

A captain of industry

sold out

Industrial bath salts, carbolic, lanolin and sheep dip, then bog myrtle, thyme, heather flowers, chopped apples and celery. Unlit fireworks in their box and cigar ash. Sweet, clean and lightly cooling to taste (menthol cigarettes), with ash in the finish. Water simplifies the aroma and makes it more grubby/industrial – ‘well used electrical equipment’, minerals, batteries, soot. An oily texture and a sweet taste: smoky, with coal dust in the aftertaste and finish. We imagine the operators contemplating the Paps of Jura through the massive windows of their still house.
