FANCY MEATING YOU HERE
Cask No. 138.10
As often with these parcels, we found a wonderfully different take on peat flavour. It opened with soft and aromatic notes of bandages, gauze and mouth gel. Then it dovetailed with citrus curds, sweet cereals, cough mixtures and a lightly chalky smokiness. Reduction brought more playful notes of mint choc chip ice cream, American cream soda, gorse flower and an ethereal and fragile peat smoke.
The neat palate was brimming with tropical juices, sweet children's cough medicines, herbal syrups, menthol and camphor balm, pollens and banana liqueur. Some water brought classical vanilla and bubble gum vibes, along with a gentle peppery warmth and medicinal embrocations.
