Cask No. 3.228 Old & dignified

A deep, brooding masterpiece

sold out

At first there were blackberries, then salted caramel sweets and freshly baked gingerbread men. Light, measured peat, rich Soreen Malt Loaf and beautiful amoroso sweetness  combined. Then, a fizz on the tongue with Love Hearts, Seville oranges and redcurrants. Hints of Pears soap, sweet charcoal dust and eucalyptus sung softly, whilst the understated smoke provided a steady bass-line.  Some were taken to a fireside in a log cabin, while others walked on a beach in the rain. We enjoyed spare ribs with a sticky soy glaze followed by a handful of Edinburgh Rock candy. Bakewell tarts, smoke and lavender to finish. Harmonious:  Everything in its right place
