Cask No. 53.227 Peated

Sweet, salty and smoky

sold out

On the nose neat a lot of foodie aromas made us all very hungry indeed; spicy sausage casserole, honeyed pork loin with plum and lavender relish but also simple old fashioned mincemeat pie and chips wrapped in newspaper served with salt and vinegar. It tasted as it smelled โ€“ fabulous! Sweet, salty, smoky like a broiled tuna steak (centre has remained pink) with a zingy herb sauce. Water turned it into a grilled pork cutlet with a maple chipotle glaze as well as dried seaweed and Japanese sweet omelette. The never-ending finish was peat smoke entwined with fresh salty sea air.
