    A beautiful Manzanilla cask maturation with all the wood oils, polishes, brass and salinity. Lots of sourdough, barley and yeast character and it doesn't stray from the Industrial qualities that we know of the three closed Inverness distilleries. Asphalt and machine tools with stone fruits such as apricot and nectarine popping through. Settles really nicely with some water and gets very bready and phenolic, some burnt toast and furniture polish, varnish and all that malarkey. Later on some creme de violette and tertiary florals, heather and jasmine. Absolutely wonderful bitter palate exploration. The majority of todays hungry vintage closed distillery whisky punters, (you know who you are!) probably won't understand this one at first as there is really not much cask sweetness or obvious notes but this is a gorgeous apertivo to be appreciated when you have time to relax with just the sound of the wind in the trees.
