FANCY MEATING YOU HERE
Cask No. 138.10
The sweetness of the initially smoky aroma was incredible – a potpourri of heather, lavender, roses and violets. This was followed by scorched juicy raisins and the scent of crushed pink and white seashells. When we tried it, just like ‘Hazy Sunset’ – a cocktail made from smoked ice, pineapple and lime juice, light rum and two dashes of Angostura bitters garnished with a fresh cherry and mint sprig.
With a small amount of water, we made duck breast a l’orange with sweet oven roasted new potatoes, while on the palate we went Japanese enjoying sticky miso and lime-glazed octopus with crispy matcha tempura batter. Bottled for the 2021 Islay Whisky Festival.
