Cask No. 33.124 Heavily peated

An engineer's lunch-box

sold out

The rather assertive nose combined toffee popcorn, fudge, raisins, prunes, pecan pie and blackstrap molasses with liquorice root, creosote, aniseed, brown sauce, old wood and compost. The palate encompassed over-done crackling, spiced sausage, smoked duck, treacle toffee, orange, chipotle chillies and coke clinker – sweet and savoury, with an industrial edge. In reduction, the nose suggested an immaculately kept engine room and the engineer’s lunch-box containing blackcurrant drink, cheese and onion sandwiches, orange, dates and maybe a toffee apple. The reduced palate had walnut whip sweetness – enough to carry the smoke and the industry. The distillery was officially founded in 1815.
