RED SKY AT NIGHT, BARN'S ALIGHT
Cask No. 16.80
The nose, minty, herbal and Euthymol-like, cleared our sinuses, but left impressions of beach barbecues (smoke, embers, melted tar, sea water, caramelized sausages, smoky bacon, pepper, Branston pickle, leather gloves and burnt gym shoes). The palate was absolutely huge – tarry driftwood, smoking tires, bacon rolls, jalapeños and barbecued prawns. With water, the nose freshened – the BBQ (sprinkled with bog myrtle and eucalyptus) was now in the grounds of a hospital (First Aid boxes, bandages, nurses’ uniforms, TCP, pharmacy potions and powders). The palate was now, smoky, sooty and hot, with mint humbugs and clove-studded roast ham. Prince Charles favours this distillery.
