GAUZE AND EFFECT
Cask No. 53.275
A variety of images came to mind nosing this sample neat. Smoked salted almonds, peat-smoked lobster tails and a steaming hot mug of Lapsang Souchong tea as well as the exhaust fumes of a tugboat. On the palate neat, a sweet peat smoke caramel explosion like taking the first sip of a mojito cocktail served with caramelized sugar-crusted key limes grilled over a screaming-hot peat fire.
Diluted, we were transported into a kiln where barley was being dried over a blasting fire just being stoked with peat slaps before we sat down to eat honey and nut cluster muesli.
