PEAT FIRE TALES ON ORKNEY
Cask No. 4.292
Fresh and lightly maritime – salt crystals, seaweed, mineralic – with some fragrant dried-floral or mixed dried herbal notes, becoming faintly medicinal and peaty. Eucryl Tooth Powder – check it out! Sweet and citric to taste, with a smoky finish: ‘minty chewing tobacco’, commented one panel member. With water, solvent notes emerge, but also dried fruits - ‘sultanas in alcohol’, Madeira cake – then bath salts, Refreshers (sherbet sweets) and burnt eucalyptus leaves. Sweet, fresh and slightly salty to taste, with a whiff of smoke in the finish; maritime overall, with minty notes. An appealing example of Michael Jackson’s ‘Great All-Rounder’.
