1 of only 299 bottles from cask no. 1477A very bright mid-amber with golden notes and excellent beading.The initial nose is all about brown sugar and treacle, possibly even molasses. This richens to dark tablet and burnt sugar with a delicate thread of smoke in the background. Even richer on the palate with plenty of smoke now: hessian sacks, singed sheep’s wool (Hebridean) and a waxy smoked cheese coating. Water introduces some brine notes – memories of standing on a wind swept beach on the north coast.A lovely mouthfeel – all sweetness and smoke, drying to a long finish.
