Cask No. 46.131
The nose conveyed clementines, cherries, sweet and salty popcorn, peppery jamon Serrano, clove-studded ham, a basket of mushrooms and suede shoes walking through clover towards a farm-yard. The palate had peppery, earthy, salty, savoury elements (pork scratchings) yet was surprisingly sweet too, with caramel and toffee popcorn. The reduced nose was floral and carbolic, a child was blowing bubbles and eating candy cigarettes in a sun-dappled pine forest. The reduced palate continued the sweet and salty fascination – Turkish Delight, rock salt, clove rock, lucky tatties (cinnamon) and a lick of limestone. The distillery was once a safe haven for spiders.
