Cask No. 26.71 Old & dignified

The great outdoors

sold out

The fresh nose brought us outdoors – wet sand, chalky cliffs and rock pools with fishing nets catching shellfish and crabs.  We then enjoy starfruit, bananas and nectarines, interwoven with fresh sea breeze and cooling mentholic air.  There’s clean linen on the line with seaspray. The taste revealed saltiness, like eating shellfish on the beach or swimming with your mouth open!  There was a waxiness too, like citronella candles and seaweed. Bacon and old reels of button thread also made an appearance. The reduced nose became soapier and savoury; linen and lux flakes, starch washing and woollen jumpers; pork and baked ham and brown scallops.  The reduced palate was soft, clean and sappy - marshmallows on a stick, lemongrass and cumin, and spicy scallops. Spring water from the Clynemilton burn is used to produce this fruity, slightly smoky Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
