RED SKY AT NIGHT, BARN'S ALIGHT
Cask No. 16.80
The smell made us all smile and for some there were memories of a warm sunny autumn afternoon day - peat smoke emerging from the pagoda and a fresh salty/briny breeze - standing on the pier at the distillery by ‘the beautiful hollow by the broad bay’. Freshly opened oysters, crispy seaweed and tempura prawns with a sweet chili sauce complete the kaleidoscope of aromas. Very restrained on the palate; salty and sweet popcorn, beach barbeque with langoustines and scallops as well as crispy aromatic duck. Adding water it becomes like a comfort blanket or a long soak in the bath. Sweeter and juicy to taste like a tropical fruit salad and in the finish clean peat smoke.
