The aroma for this one was typical and excellent. Heather flowers, aniseed, herbal cough syrup and mineral oils. Also wee touches of beach pebble, burlap and coal tar soap. Coastal and superbly fresh. With water we found acrylics, some emergent sharp smokiness, chalk, beach foam and bonfire embers.
In the mouth the peat arrives much more clearly with immediate notes of kiln smoke, malt vinegar, seawater and olives in brine. Some soft heathery peat and olive oil. Reduction brought dried herbs, smouldering beach wood, hot smoked salmon and a sharp tang of seawater. At 6 years of age, we combined selected casks from the same distillery. We then returned the single malt into a variety of different casks to develop further. This is one of those casks.
