Cask No. 122.26 Lightly peated

IT'S PEAT JIM, BUT NOT AS WE KNOW IT

$141.99

A remarkable concoction of peated jelly babies, medical tinctures, silage, burnt kelp, sandalwood, fishing nets, wet beach pebbles, charred wood, chalk and lively minerality. Wonderfully funky! Develops further notes of dried twigs, farmyard, marzipan and crystallized fruits.

Water unearths pineapple jelly, ointment, wood smoked porridge oats, burnt toast, peppermint candies, toffee apples and then notes of spring greens fried in butter and BBQ char. The mouth is slathered in greasy peats, TCP, tar resin, gentian eau de vie and peat oils. The mineral aspect remains gravelly while water adds leather rags, boiler smoke, paraffin wax, toasted fennel seed and Selkirk bannock. A uniquely characterful dram!
