    Tasting  Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 279 bottles from cask 5351

    A flawless example of the make from this distillery – too bad we are sworn to secrecy! Drawn from a refill bourbon cask, it is ‘harvest gold’ in colour – a fine rich hue. A penetrating smokiness on the nose: peat reek with smouldering heather and rosemary: ‘suckling wild boar on a barbeque, stuffed with wild herbs’. In time it becomes more medicinal, with coal tar and dentists’ mouthwash. Water reduces the smokiness but makes it more typical of the make, with unripe pears and hard plums and waxed jackets. The taste bursts upon the senses with unexpected vigour! Even bigger than the unreduced aroma. A creamy texture, rich and fruity taste with surprising sweetness and a blast of smoke as you swallow. A long, smouldering finish.
