THE INLAND SHORE
Cask No. 122.46
Lovely measured sweet peat smoke was followed by marshmallows roasting on an open fire and, yes, a maple bacon latte using smoky bacon flavoured maple syrup! Plenty of peat on the palate, coal embers with a splash of antiseptic wound cleanser as well as burnt Scotch pancakes with strawberry compote and cinnamon.
After the addition of water, smoky saltwater toffees, smoked custard, and popcorn. The taste now well balanced sweet, savoury and smoky; scrummy salted caramel flapjacks, pancakes with smoked salmon and crème fraiche and in the finish grilled mackerel on toast served with a zingy lemon and caper dressing.
