Cask No. 93.50 Heavily peated

Hot embers at the gate of hell

sold out

Grubby, vegetal and animalistic notes discouraged some Panellists but dark cherries, liquorice, old bike chains, black pudding & barbecued pork made for a really interesting (albeit unusual) first impression. Huge taste - blackened pork belly, schnapps & burnt meat โ€“ one was chewing hot embers covered in meat grease at the gates of hell (volcanic sulphur). Water released scorched tablecloths and burnt pig hair but with the sweetness of molten fudge and barley sugar; on the palate it was long and luxurious (but still scorched) with black pudding, tattie scones and strong sweet black tea. This Campbeltown distillery was built in 1832.
