Cask No. 3.221 Oily & coastal

Starry, starry night

sold out

Childhood memories of airfix paint, Scalextric tires, linseed oil and caramel bars. Smoked duck breast and grilled oyster on the barbecue. To taste the panel found red licorice laces and burnt marshmallows. A big puff of peat, tarry rope and chorizo on the tongue. With water, we found it became fresher with aromas of menthol and English lavender. A crisp mineralic quality smoothed out the peat. It reminded one of ‘sooking spoots’ (sucking razor clams) from the shell. A clean and spritely finish of black pepper and sparkling water make this a perfect nightcap.
