    N: Distinctive! We start with smokey bacon Frazzles & pickled onion Monster Munch, ceviche, emulsion, burnt toffee, over-cooked cooking apples, a touch of shoe polish > Swarfega, chestnuts, sweet furniture polish,…. as well as plenty of caramel and molasses. Balcones? Na, not freaky enough. Surely it’s too freaky for a cheeky Chichibu?
    T: Surely this must be Octomore? I pick up sweet peaty Cognac-y molasses notes with a touch of onion-y soot and thick ole’ sea defence oak groin slabs. A strangely waxy > oily/briny mouthfeel ensues, turning rubbery, so suggestions then of some sort of sherry-matured whisky [not Limousine casks, a la Octomore 6.2].
    F: Savoury > sour < sweet molassas=caramel mixed with the waxy bacon-y peat, one more tiny drop of Swarfega and a hint of dried sour lemon. After some bitter oily oakiness, there’s a hugely pleasing ashy quality at the death.
    C: What distillery makes such curious swings & roundabouts whisk[e]y? Tobermory [Ledaig] Ardmore, Springbank, the Americans? It’s so obvious when you know.
