An intriguing mixture of flapjacks, malt extract, cinnamon buns, chocolate orange and a steak grilling over sweet chestnut charcoal made us rather curious as we took a sip. Wow, it was a smoky and sweet ‘dirty steak’ - think caveman or cowboy. However, there was a small difference as we served it with a deep purple, full-bodied Chilean Malbec with those on-the-tongue flavours of damson and blackberry alongside notes of pepper and spice, while in the long finish a savoury sweet note of a Turkish coffee. Following eight years in an Oloroso butt, we transferred this whisky into a heavy charred 1st fill puncheon.
