Cask No. 4.315 Oily & coastal
NO VIKINGS NEED APPLY
The initial aroma suggested flapjacks, blueberry muffin and Bakewells but all wrapped up in whiffs of ashy smoke and wet rigging. Wind-lashed harbours, pebble beaches, sand and seaweed crackers. Reduction offered us wintergreen and other medicinal herbs. Citrus scented candles, lime oil, creel nets and crushed aspirin. The palate displayed an easy, silky mouthfeel with notes of smoked limoncello, seawater, olives in pickling brine, sardines in olive oil and iodine drops.
With water we got burlap, throat lozenges, aniseed and hints of camphor. At nine 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.
