Cask No. 127.43 Heavily peated

Kissing a smoker

sold out

A damp shed containing oil paints, turpentine and rabbit skin glue soon developed into meaty and peaty notes. There was roast pork, turkey and pheasant on the menu and a Twix to wash it all down. The palate had lots of peat and a caramelized meatiness then lasting cigarette smoke on the finish. It was described as ashy and epic, "Like kissing a smoker" one panellist said. The nose with water took us back to the shed in oily overalls for some putty and linseed oil. Then the meaty notes returned - Chinese suckling pig and duck in hoisin sauce. Honey glazed ham with rosemary and thyme on the palate and plenty of smoke to finish.
