RED SKY AT NIGHT, BARN'S ALIGHT
Cask No. 16.80
A smoky, coal tar nose, with dried lavender and old fashioned marker pen scents behind. A clean, sweet, fresh, maritime taste, still with a hint of perfume, but also of Bovril and soy sauce. Light olive oil emerges with water; the smoke recedes and the lavender (now faded) is joined by aloe vera leaves. Still sweet, salty and smoky to taste – consistent with its taste unreduced. Many would say the operators at this distillery have the finest view from any still-house.
