Cask No. 3.189 Peated

Echoes of bonfires & funfairs

sold out

Initial nose impressions of sparklers and struck matches gave way to scented sticks, manuka honey on buttered toast, flambéed bananas, parma violets, beurre noisette and shrimps cooked over peat on a sandy beach. The taste could best be described as fierce but pleasant – ash, smoke, burnt toffee, toffee apples, echoes of bonfire night; dry clove and mustard heat to finish. The reduced nose suggested wellies, rock-pools and funfairs (diesel generators, candy floss, donuts, fireworks, muddy fields). The palate was now sweet (sticky dates, cinder toffee) with earthy undertones and an ashy after-taste. The distillery was once visited by the Queen.
