Spirit NOTES

At six years of age, we combined selected casks from this distillery and then returned the single malt into a variety of casks to develop. This is one of those casks. The nose evoked bloody marys at sundown, and foil-wrapped potatoes and chicken wings cooking on the bonfire, followed by custard tarts and cigars. To taste, the smoke was evident but urbane – burnt heather stems and candyfloss sticks, tar, toffee and tobacco. The reduced nose offered honey-cured crispy bacon, seared padron peppers, lemon tart and machair aromas of bog myrtle and wild thyme. The palate became zestier – orange and lemon, heather honey and marshmallows, with a finish of hickory-smoked hot dogs, charred oak and coffee grounds.
