OLD-SCHOOL WITH A TWIST
Cask No. 4.312
The sweet smoky scent of a Thai starter platter made us all feel very hungry. We could choose from prawn toast, spring rolls, curry parcels, spicy dumplings, crispy seaweed and smoky spicy prawn crackers with a sweet chili dip. The taste neat felt like relaxing in a recliner chair or a warming massage with menthol and lavender oil.
Water added a Smoky Grove cocktail using peaty whisky, vermouth, bitters and the twist of a flamed orange peel. On the palate now loose ginger tea with a hint of lemongrass and liquorice with a well-balanced sweet and smoky seemingly never-ending finish.
