    Part of the Spring 2014 Bottlings

    From SMWS Australia:

    Cask No. 42.13Comments: This cask comes from a distillery that produces two variants – one peated and the other unpeated. (They go by different names). This cask is the peated variety and is a rare beast for the Society – it’s the first cask to be featured in Australia since our branch started in 2002. Sadly, an advance sample was not available for our local tasting panel, however, our Cellarmaster visited the distillery last May and was extremely impressed with the many drams he tried at the source. It’s an “island” level of peating (think Highland Park or Talisker), rather than a heavy hitter like a Laphroaig or Ardbeg, but this allows the distillery’s sweet, fruity character to come through too.
     

    UK Tasting Panel:

    We sniffed out an old first aid box in the engine room of the Vital Spark – on deck, smoke and sea-spray framed a picnic of lobster bisque and oysters, seared gammon and toffee. Water softened the nose – the chief engineer, in overalls, was holding a matchbox on a storm-refreshed beach, burning seaweed. The neat palate provoked ‘Ouch!’ – foundry ash and hot metal, fireworks, cloves, Tabasco, salty peanuts, toasted sesame seeds, smoked fish and pork scratchings. It seemed sweeter with water (popcorn, sugared almonds rolled in ash) – a challenging dram from Tobermory, but some of us could have drunk it all night.
