Cask No. 122.46 Peated

THE INLAND SHORE

$191.99

The panel encountered a particularly savoury and crisp peat smoke at first. Then plenty of fresh, coastal salinity, smoked olive oil, preserved lemons, citrus air fresheners and sardines charred over hot wood embers. Water brought a zing of hot acrylic, warm vinyl, sandalwood, umami paste and a hint of seawater.

The neat palate opened with bath salts, fragrant dried herbs, cured white fish, bacon frazzles and finally a waft of more grubby, organic peat coming through. Reduction added layers of complexity that suggested sheep wool oils, rock pools, dried seaweed, mineral oils, umami pasta water and an increasingly sharp saltiness.
