This is the fifth cask from our secret cellar of rare island malt.The liquid has a deep, faerie gold colour and strong beading. The nose is smoky and very peppery, yet the nose-feel effect is cooling. The overall effect is clean and fresh, like dentists’ mouthwash, bringing to mind wind-swept dunes and sea-wrack strewn beaches. Water introduces some grubby smoke to the scene; a distant bonfire on which a tractor tire is smouldering among drift-wood and dried seaweed. The taste is surprisingly sweet, with some acidity and distinct saltiness. Chilli-pepper as you swallow. Full-bodied, with a long and warming finish. A close to perfect expression of this distillery’s distinctive style. You must guess where it has come from!
