Cask No. 53.165 Peated

Peat fire toasted marshmallows

sold out

The nose was multi-layered – medicinal (liniment, plaster-cast, deep heat) – sweet (peach syrup, digestive biscuits, heather honey, peat-fire toasted marshmallows) and meaty (pulled pork) – also damp wool and walnuts. The unreduced palate had bacon bites, cashmere, camphor, salted almonds, smouldering embers and immense, scrumptious sweetness. The reduced nose conjured up an old-fashioned matron standing at the hospital laundry door – while in a parallel dimension we found cooked lobster and ocean spray. The reduced palate, clean and sweet with muted smoke, had light medicinal elements, cloves, honey, lavender, and Marram grasses waving over moonlit sand-dunes. The distillery looks over the narrows to Jura.
