Cask No. 29.121 Peated

Seafood party on the beach

sold out

The initial nose gave coal sacks, beach barbecue wood smoke, ash, Germolene, raisins, toffee and toasted nuts – before turning Oriental (curry plant leaves, lemongrass, coconut, cinnamon). The beach factor increased with water – freshly painted boats, beach huts, rock-pools, shells, dunes, seared scallops and smoked bacon in mussel chowder. The palate was very sweet – coconut, candy, sweet tobacco and langoustines, balanced nicely by cigars and smoke from a driftwood fire. The reduced palate was softer – now a rich, creamy, texture with savoury flavours of lobster and brown bread with moules marinières. The distillery was established in 1815 by the Johnston brothers.
