This one for a very fine whisky shop in Zurich, Switzerland. Hoppla! Colour: white wine. Nose: bready, smoky, coastal, yeasty, with notes of roots, celeriac… This is yet another take, rootier, even more on the raw ingredients. With water: damp oatcakes and brown bread, plus fresh carrots, perhaps. Mouth (neat): I’ll say it again, what a wonderful distillate! We’re pretty close to the new make here, without much maturation and almost no wood influence, but that’s something we like at WF Towers. Bread, roots, lemons, leaven bread, turnips, Jerusalem artichokes, seawater, salsify, pepper… What a wonderful soup! With water: the lemons are arriving. Finish: long, with a lot of sweet barley. Comments: much less peat in these batches, but on the other hand, the barleyness is impeccable. Some remarkable liquid bread.
