Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes

    • Colour

      Deep Gold.

    • Nose

      A heavy and lively mix of aromatics, this single cask reveals an amazing balance of rich savoury and sweet flavours, setting an expectation of depth and intensity. At full strength, the aroma is initially rich and raisiny with hints of fruit cake and coffee. Then rich beefy savoury flavours emerge with black olives, smoky bacon a hint of salami and rich peat oil in the background.

    • Taste

      The mouth-feel is smooth and exceptionally oily and chewy with a lightly mouth-coating effect.

    • Finish

      Long and intriguing with lemon curd, olives and cocoa.

    • Comment

      With water, the aroma increases in aromatic oils revealing layers of lemon and lavender oil with traces of linseed oil and aniseed. Beneath the oils, a soft creaminess is discovered with hints of peat and lemon curd, reminiscent of eating a lemon meringue pie with a mouthful of simmering cappuccino coffee with cocoa powder on top.

      The taste is rich, sumptuous and full-flavoured revealing a beguiling mix of lemon oil and barley sugar intermingled with walnuts, treacle and dates. There is a big smoky middle which brings bourbon biscuits, cocoa and the flavour of coffee cake.
