OLD-SCHOOL WITH A TWIST
Cask No. 4.312
A mineralic edge of crushed flint combined with salty sea breeze and freshly sanded oak with its vanilla laced sweetness being reminiscent of pink wafer biscuits. A delicate smoke shrouded the glass like charred bonfire embers but with a sweet coating of runny honey.
With water a light fruitiness evolved with freshly juiced blood oranges and tangy gooseberry tart beside a rock pool. The palate carried a delightfully nutty character with salted pistachio nuts wrapped in a creamy blanket of thick milk shake and cranachan. Blackcurrant jam and sultanas followed before a lasting finish of sea salt on lemon skin.
