Cask No. 29.140 Heavily peated
Juicy, salty and sooty
Many would say this is the most pungent of the Islay malts, and certainly this cask supports the claim. Carbolic and Coal Tar soap, road tar and soot are the first notes, backed more subtly by Brazil nuts, raw monkey nuts and pine nuts, then tools in a garden shed, ‘including lawnmower and grubby dungarees’. The taste is very sweet, salty and very smoky: ‘smoked hot-dog, with barbecue sauce’, evolving into oysters with clamato sauce. More medicinal with water (foot baths, wet suits and rubber dinghies); not quite so sweet to taste and less salty, but still bags of sooty smoke.
