PREPARATION FOR SKINNY DIPPING
Cask No. 53.270
On the one hand, the nose had orchard fruits, sweet barley and lemon bonbons – but on the other; burnt heather, ash, carbolic, coal-dust, barbecued ribs, salt-cooked prawns and a freshly laid tarmac road by the sea. The palate was angelically sweet, with citric notes (lemon zest, chocolate limes rolled in ash) and a cedar wood sauna. With water, the nose shifted to honey and sweet cereal bars counterpointing bitumen, wellington boots, wax and smoke. The reduced palate discovered tobacco, menthol, vanilla, macadamia and pistachio, along with cheesy footballs by a swimming pool. The distillery was founded by the Johnston brothers.
