British Columbia: $188.61

Lovely to try this great make from a refill cask we all agreed. The natural robustness of the distillate showed through straight away with canvas, dry cereals, starched linens, chalk and mineral oil. After that it became sweeter with toffee, vanilla pods and ginger biscuits. Water brought sweeter cereal tones, ozone freshness, sheep wool and savoury miso. The sense of a taut, well-structured distillate.

The mouth was wonderfully rich with condensed milk, sharp green apple, muddled herbs, fennel and burlap. A dollop of malt extract too. Reduction brought more oily and mineral tones with green tea, flower honey and charred pineapple.
