Cask No. 66.144
The first nose wave had PVA glue, waxed paper and soor plooms; the second wave a tsunami of liquorice, tar, burnt heather and the string from Arbroath smokies or kabanos. The unreduced palate had sweet toasted lavender, scorched heather, tarry ropes and Imperial Leather, with a fine, long-lasting impact. The reduced nose delivered Fry’s orange cream by a scalextric track; one panellist was working on his bicycle – brake pads, inner tubes and the tar-mac road. The reduced palate suggested mint humbugs and orange tic-tacs – fabulously sweet with smoky depths – a dram to trigger vivid dreams. The distillery heats a swimming-pool.
