- A malt with a distinctive and undisturbed Destelleriecharakter: straight forward, sweet, medicinal, many herbs and maritime. Brilliant!
Extremely medicated, ash, smoke, herbs, varnish, salt, gauze bandage, adhesive plaster, tape;
Sweet and like, medical, iodine, hospital, adhesive plaster, asphalt, varnish, caramelized herbs of all kinds, wet light wood, oak, dry;
Long and powerful, young and wild, warming, medically, all sorts of herbs, still sweet;
- CASK No.
A lively start of lemon sherbet and strawberry shoelaces quickly yielded to the familiar medicinal nuances of antiseptic cream. Still incredibly sweet we discovered aniseed chews with the warm tingle of camphor and an oily note similar to smoked juniper. Salt infused wood washed up on the beach brought us onto the palate that also had an undeniably salty twang. Then came a good thwack of ash and burnt nuts overlaid by subtle floral fragrance. With water a more meaty side developed as pork roasted with thyme jostled for position with smoked oysters. The finish remained a salt laden affair, joined by liquorice sticks and a light dusting of charcoal.
