At six years of age, we combined selected casks from this distillery. We then returned the single malt into a variety of different casks to develop further. This is one of those casks. The nose delivered lovely light smoke and brine – wooden-decked yachts moored at the pier, honey-drizzled pears, rice paper on nougat and bacon and rosemary cooked over charcoal. The palate had boiled sweets and honey, smoked sea-salt, tarry driftwood and leather in an Arbroath smoke hut. The reduced nose had cinnamon and pepper, lemon and pine, polished shoes, seashells and harbour-side creels. The palate was now rich, honeyed and mouth-coating, with wood-smoke and ice-cream from a sea-side van. The finish had aniseed gobstoppers, cumin and tar.
