Spirit NOTES

The nose began with garden sheds, honey on telephone poles and balsamic; then it showed its seductive side with ice-cream sundaes, strawberry Mivvi and cranachan – but soon the wind changed again bringing driftwood bonfires and coffee beans in hessian sacks. Tasting it, we found subtle smoke, salted caramel, prune yoghurt, treacle, muscovado and nicotine tar. The reduced nose favoured rock-pools, ships’ timbers and lemon squeezed over fish suppers, caramelised almonds, nut brittle and vanilla. The palate became sweet, salty and citric – clamato juice, treacle tart, tapenade on brown bread, cinnamon toast and pork cooked in bay leaves and whisky sauce. At 17 years of age, we combined selected casks from this distillery. We then returned that single malt into a variety of different casks to develop further. This is one of those casks.
